Maybe Mr. Wilhelm should have taken better care of the horse so that they wouldn't have ended up in a "Kill Auction." Oh and you can't own what never was truly yours.
Give a teacher a raise, fire an Administrator.
How can we have affordable housing when the City keeps raising the tap fees for building a house? They have nearly doubled the fees in recent years to over 15,000 dollars for the right to tap into water and sewer. This doesn't include the cost of actually doing the work.
And yet the City spends millions on new land every year.
I was all for the .5 cent sales tax for education when in was first came to voters some years ago. However it is a failed tax where the money ended up costing our School District State funding, because it generated too much money, and for what? Our Teachers fell way below State standards in teaching and integrating technology into the classroom last year. 2B is going to prove to be another failed tax. Just because we flood a problem with money doesn't mean that we will be able to fix it.
2B sounds like a "If you pay for it, they will come" Tax. Just because we pay to off set the seats doesn't mean that those seats will come full. Lets face it, Steamboat is a case of inconsistent branding. Without a common, consistent, image its hard to market ourselves.
As we all know snow sell seats and the vibe of the town brings people back year after year. With a mixed sense of direction, in our marketing and self image, how are we truly going to be able to sell our town over any other Ski Town? Whether we vote in favor of 2B or not, the same issues will still stand in our way.
"All those in favor say I"
That motion does indeed pass
The comics are a great way to forget the trubles in my day and remind me to smile.
