Steamboat Springs The Hayden Town Council on Thursday is expected to welcome and swear in the town's newest police officer.
The council will have a joint work session with the Routt County Board of Commissioners from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Hayden Town Hall. The regular meeting will start at 7:30 p.m.
The town's newest police officer is Mark Berkley, and he already has started his field training. Berkley most recently was a deputy and field training officer with the Summit County Sheriff's Office. He is filling the position vacated by Ed Corriveau, who now is a police officer in Oak Creek.
After welcoming Berkley, the council will consider renewing the HiWay Bar’s liquor license and will have a discussion about whether to continue requiring inspections and related fees for single-stop permits. Single-stop permits are needed for some roofing work, window replacement, siding work, furnace replacements, water heater replacements, no-window air conditioning systems, lawn sprinkler installations and demolition work. The permits are not required in the county, which creates confusion among Hayden residents, according to a memo from town officials.
The council also will consider purchasing a 2013 motor grader from Wagner Equipment Co. to replace a 1981 motor grader. The town would pay $234,200 for the new machine after receiving $49,000 for trading in the old motor grader.
