Hey kids.. I heard the circus was back in town again..Get your tickets and enjoy the lighted ride on the Steamboat marry-go-round :*)
Don't forget that due to an ancient 50 year old building, they now want a new town hall built on the 10th st parking lot across from Bob's.
Great video and great job creating a strong lid for a standard garbage tote. Pretty cool watching a grizzly try to figure it out. Makes our black bears look measly in comparison.. One thing to note " a grizzly will most not leave his food and will most likely stand his ground killing you and then eating you. Where as our black bears will almost always run when approached or can be simply scared off by sound, even around food.".... But don't always count on it.. Our black bears can occasionally be aggressive and may attack or bluff attack but we are highly unlikely to be eaten by one..
Not sure where this 11 yr program came from.. The Bear cans just got installed last year throughout town and the city is now finally starting to take measures on residential trash.. No excuse for commercial cans. This should have been implemented years ago like in many other mountain towns... Double thumbs down for Steamboat on this one :(
We have to start with the trash (plain and simple)... Yes. bird feeders and composter's are also a problem but this is nothing new. This is all old info on how to discourage bears in the area. Just like camping-you don't leave food out and accessible and you don't take into your tent with you unless you want company... Because Steamboat waited so long to implement any change, our bear problem and population have gotten our of control and will continue for some time to come.. And now we got an influx of moose which will become a growing problem.
Intrawest CEO says real estate market is 'primed,' ready for development.....
ASC (Another Screwed up Company) said the same thing and look what happened..
...Once again city council keeps talking about issues in downtown Steamboat but yet considers building on a parking lot on 10th street therefore eliminating more parking spaces in the heart of downtown.. ( New school, new town hall and now a new fire station)-all aboard the money train..
They also keep mentioning the 55yr old town hall building likes its prehistoric or something.
Are there some serious issues with this building that a less expensive remodel cant accomplish??
Maybe we should tear everything down in Steamboat and rebuild the town from scratch..
Well whatever the long term answer may be to this growing issue, the trash cans still need to be secured and no excuses for city cans and commercial business's.. Outside composting, and bird feeders are and will become more of a problem in the future to.. IMO, the city needs to start with securing trash and continue to move forward with alternative options (no-lethal) unless necessary..
There is also the issue of how residents will afford the bear-resistant trash cans, which can cost more than $200.
..........I dont understand why our trash facilities cant offer rental cans like they do in other mountain towns. They are only a few extra dollars extra each month and that takes care of the hassle of trying to get the entire community to purchase one at $200-300.....
Looks like we know where the next stop light will be installed...
Ever heard of someone on pot smashing into a mailbox and dragging a puppy by car and leash :(
Well that just happened to a 36 yr old drunk man in Craig America..
What the hell people. Educate yourself already. Anyone visiting Ace would have to go out of their way to see the location of natural choice where as Golden Leaf sits bright as day on hwy 40 for all to see, sits on the bus route, sits next to a brewery, restaurant, public car wash, landscape supply company and on the public bike path. I am shocked by Aces statement and dont believe that the entire staff feels that way. We may now reconsider shopping there...
