Based on recent comments from council members, a public vote on the station appears to be unlikely, but there are several members who are open to the idea of forming a citizens committee to recommend building sites.
Several Steamboat City Council members uncomfortable with city's decision to hire councilman's close relative to vet police station sites
The council's discomfort came after the realization that council member Tony Connell's brother-in-law was paid by the city to investigate a building site on U.S. Highway 40 just south of the Hampton Inn that Connell himself has a financial investment in.
City staff and architects on Tuesday night will brief the Steamboat City Council on the sites and ask that they eliminate the ones they aren't comfortable with.
