Steamboat briefs: Hayden council to consider repealing license ordinance
May 6, 2010
Steamboat Springs — The Hayden Town Council is scheduled to consider tonight whether to remove the town ordinance that requires license fees for plumbers and drain layers.
Town Manager Russ Martin said the 100-year-old ordinance is obsolete.
Town Council members also will consider whether to close Third Street at Hayden Town Park for the 32nd annual Hayden Cog Run on June 12. The Town Council also will consider approving a liquor license for Trini's Hot Dog'n Paradise at Yampa Valley Regional Airport.
Members are scheduled to discuss the Hayden Speedway.
The meeting is set to begin at 7 p.m. today with staff and council member reports at Hayden Town Hall, 178 W. Jefferson Ave. The regular session is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.
Pet food drive to run this month at several locations
Girl Scout Emily Wertz will be collecting wet and dry cat and dog food for the Steamboat Springs Animal Shelter for two weekends in May. Emily will be at City Market from 2 to 4 p.m. May 15; Safeway from 2 to 4 p.m. May 16; Paws N Claws N Things from 2 to 4 p.m. May 23; and Walmart from 2 to 4 p.m. May 24. She'll also be collecting cat litter — not the scoop kind.
