I agree with everyone here.
This whole issue started in cities where peoples cars were being stolen outside their home in the early hours while waiting for their car to warm up.
First of all if you were to start up your car in this frigid weather and just taks off, your vehicle would probably make a not so plesant unhealthy noise and your widows would instantly fog up freezing your winshield from the inside. A vehicle needs to warm up a bit in these temperatures untill the engine is idling somewhat normal and some form of heat starts to circulate through it.
School buss's, construction equipment, semi trucks, police cars. Not to mention the city buss and shuttle buss's that idle at the transit center. The list goes on of vehicles that idle in the morning while warming up.
IMO this has become one of the dumbest things a city should allocate money for to reinforce.
:-) Ditto on that. Thanks for your invaluable service..
Allied waste off Hwy 93 is about $75.00 for one pick up load. More for trailers. They charge also by weight not just square footage. They will not accept uncovered loads. This is to keep trash from blowing out as you drive to the landfill..Milner also offers recycling dump for things like appliances.
Elsewhere you would have to specificaly search out a company offering that service and is quite expensive.
It is an old mess that should have been cleaned up a long time ago. It is nice to see that someone is trying to get it done. The canyon went through a clean up yrs ago to get rid of most the left over mining junk left behind from the day. It brightened up the drive which was once an eyesore of old mineing equipment left behind.
NOW we have to peer off the road and see someone elses junk litter the canyon floor. One of those trash heaps has finaly been cleaned up but what about the other that sits on a water source all of us drive by every day.
I cant be the only one that talks out loud in my car everytme I drive by it.
I have always kept quiet regarding this matter because of who the property belongs to but maybe who ever this person is from Phippsburg who complained will have started more people to voice there opinion instead of ignoring it.

I also listned to the npr news cast on the way to work and found nothing wrong with it unless you dont like humor..
First of all, graphiti is a form of art. So calling someone a graphiti artist is actualy correct. Now if someone takes that form of art and applies it without permission to property that does not belong to them it is now vandelism and trespassing. There is a famous graphiti artist in NY named Banksy that just sold a piece of graphiti art for $600,000 (so graphiti is definately an expressive version of art)..
If someone painted a beautiful mnt with a colorful sunset without permission on property that was not theres it woud also be vandelism and trespassing.
A specific style of art can be beautiful to one person and not to another. That why its art..
Tagging something (which is what this dummy actualy did) is leaving a mark, symbol or name that reckognizes himself as the one who did it. (kind of like a fingerprint)
Hope this adds to the confusion...
Scott, I do like the idea of a substation on the mountain..It realy makes sense in so many ways. The amount of money saved with a smaller sattelite station and gas use from town to the mountain would be quite substantial. The response time would also increase quite a bit. It seems to me that this avenue should be persued further. We keep hearing about this place and that place along with a couple places they have not revieled to the community yet. We havent realy heard any pros or cons about a sub station which seems like one of the best ideas that the community may get behind and should require further discussion. As far as RVP, it wasnt just about the neighborhood in that area as they posted. It was more about the community as a whole voicing there opinion..Finally some common sense prevailed.. :-)
I fear that after talking to people about this that there are many that have no idea this is being proposed..I am ready to go down to 3rd st and hold signs against this and city council..Any takers??
I am not sure how it works, but if around $25,000 is owed I am suprised that someone hasnt stepped up to take it over. Wish I had those funds...
This is truly a sad day for Steamboat.. :-(
I dont disagree with you Scott and finding a balanced growth is different for many. But its hard not to get somewhat disgusted when these developments pop up continuously changing the way Stmbt looks..I am definatly a little biased with what was, then wast has or will become.
On the positive side for the all the single men, the guy / girl ratio isnt 12 to 1 any more.
