Steamboat Springs morning roundup for Tuesday, Oct. 16
October 16, 2012
Good morning Steamboat Today readers.
City Manager Jon Roberts’ contract is once again a topic of discussion. The Steamboat Springs City Council will discuss his contract at Tuesday’s meeting. The City Council previously had given Roberts a set of goals to accomplish before January, and he had a contentious performance review in August where some council members called for him to be fired.
The City Council also could decide the fate of the plans for a police and fire station Tuesday. City staff is set to give presentations on the plan to demolish the Iron Horse Inn and the plan to build a joint police and fire station west of town. A document detailing the two proposals is with the story.
Hahn’s Peak Roadhouse’s permit is being reviewed. The days when the North Routt venue hosted live music could be over. A noise complaint has caused the county to look at the allowable activities at the roadhouse, and live music is not one of them.
Yampa Valley Housing Authority selects new executive director. Steamboat Springs city planner Jason Peasley has been selected as the finalist for the Yampa Valley Housing Authority’s executive director position. The previous executive director, George Krawzoff, was fired early into his tenure in an impromptu and legally questionable manner in July that was later redressed by the Housing Authority’s board during an August meeting. Peasley still needs to be officially appointed Oct. 30.
Peabody is going public with reservoir plans. After previously declining to comment about plans to construct a reservoir on Trout Creek, a Peabody Energy official is scheduled to meet Tuesday morning with the Routt County Board of Commissioners to present the proposal. Steamboat Today first reported the news of plans for a reservoir southwest of Steamboat Springs after a letter detailing the plan was circulated.
