Hey Matt, shed some light? Tell us how Rolex is not commercial? I suggest renaming it Bomar or Fos for the late ski patrollers Greg Tipton or Mike Fosdick.


Tom Whiddon 2 months, 2 weeks ago on Steamboat police step up leash law enforcement

Dogs are allowed off leash only at the first pond on Spring Creek. If you look at the city map the two ponds are in the city limits. The county begins right around the first left hand bend on the road up to the ponds. The city does own the mountain park above the ponds but that portion is not in the city limits. I'm not sure of this but I don't believe City Animal Control Officers have been sworn in as "Special Deputies" by the Sheriff. If they were, they could write county at large tickets. The same would apply to Emerald where the city limits aren't too far up Blackmere Drive. (Retired Community Service Supervisor SSPD)

Hey Doug. Hope retirement is treating you well and you are enjoying not dealing with the snow! Merry Christmas! Thanks to David, Tom and the whole crew at Public works for a great job! Days are getting longer!


Tom Whiddon 4 months, 2 weeks ago on Ambulance kayak hole on Yampa River in Steamboat gets a major facelift

What the ambulance hole needs is a place to eddy out so kayakers get more than one shot at catching the wave. It was great last spring. Hope the new changes work.


Tom Whiddon 7 years, 9 months ago on Lanning decision approaching

I think it is about time Steamboat Springs elects a mayor. A city manager trying to please 7 bosses is impossible. A mayor could stay focused on a vision for the city without being afraid he would be fired. Citizens could recall a mayor just like counsel.
