I can only assume Cory "the communicator" will be holding a public meeting to thank Kleiber and Bantle for their service to the community and his new job.
Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people, in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative viewpoints, by actively suppressing dissenting viewpoints, and by isolating themselves from outside influences.
NEED? Has the current location/size failed to keep the community safe? Does the current location/size pose a threat to the public? Was the discussion about moving the PD started because of perceived needs from within the PD or was it started by a unethical non-competitive coffee table deal?
If the PD is moved from its current location, the firehouse will also be moved at considerable expense. Why is there no discussion about this additional taxpayer burden? What is the real cost of the project? Why is this being hidden?
This process was started improperly when John Roberts did his coffee table deal with BAP. Now that all the city's original driving characters are gone, it seems more than appropriate, at this time, to let this issue rest while the problems at the SSPD are fully flushed out.
This would be a great time evaluate the past nine months of the data from the SSPD and review if the decrease in staff at the SSPD has adversely affected the quality of life in The Boat? Did the former administration overstaff the PD? Did for profit policing effect staffing levels? Does a paramilitary management style require more officers? Can we live with what we have? Does it make sense to move forward without access to the 100k report about the SSPD?
Steamboat doesn't need another reason for people to refuse to shop locally. Steamboat doesn't need another tax that makes it more expensive to live in the valley. Steamboat doesn't need to spend money just because it makes elected officials or committee members feel good.
Once again the City has no problem demonstrating ethical behavior has no place in the valley.
Don't worry Mark, I'm not over-burdened by your inability to answer my simple question or your need to interject off topic issues.
How many lives have been lost in Cuba because of the terrorist?
Mark, thanks for your input, even though you failed to answer my question and for some reason had the need to point out the obvious and of course you include your conspiracy mumbo jumbo.
