Jeff Steinke to leave Steamboat Motors for Colorado Springs


— Steamboat Motors General Manager Jeff Steinke's last day at the local dealership is Friday. He is leaving after about 5 1/2 years at the business on Lincoln Avenue west of downtown.

Steinke said he is headed to a Phil Long dealership in Colorado Springs.

"They've been talking to me for the last couple years," Steinke said, adding they recently made him an offer that persuaded him.

"My family's down there," he said. "I can get closer to my daughters."

Steinke said he has family in Woodland Park, which is northwest of Colorado Springs, and is glad he will be able to live in another small community.
