Steamboat will likely be paying for the incompetent and negligent legal advice and practices of the former City Attorney well into the future. It is almost impossible to believe someone working under this level of incompetence would be qualified to be the current city attorney. Time for a complete restructuring!
It's not the City's responsibility to change the rules to meet a developer profit projections.
Scott Ford is the least of our problems on City Council. While I don't agree at all with this idea, Scott is trying to solve a recurring problem through a different lens.
The building looks cool! But the recent inconsistent variance process can be described as "follow the money" or "crony capitalism"
"The developers said they could not have created an economically feasible project without seeking variances to the city's building code for height and density."
Overpaying for real estate is a good reason for a variance?? This logic will do nothing to alleviate over priced housing.
According to your logic. Applicants must start by making serious ethical claims??? If an applicant steps back and takes time to formulate an appeal, they are acting in bad faith???
Council President and half the town has known about this public fraud for a considerable amount of time. Why are fellow Council members allowing this to continue? Why has the President refused to maintain the integrity of the City Council?
Crossan said. “You did not give us this (potential conflict) up front. I believe you can be impartial, but you didn’t tell us, and the community didn’t know."
Why the niceties? Connell intentionally put City Council in a compromised position. His inability to disclose his feud with Mr. Caragol proves Connell has no ability to be impartial. Cornell's unwillingness to remove himself from the vote, even after he is called out, is a testament to his over inflated ego and his lack of concern for the institution he was elected to manage.
I'm looking forward Mr. Connell's next BS oath of office doublespeak.
It is rumored Mr Connell no longer resides in the district he represents. Council needs to investigate this and force him to resign if this is substantiated.
