How frustrating.. We just went through this and the city spent an extravagant amount of money to do a parking study last year. I think it was around $75,000 or some. Please, someone correct me if I am wrong. Did the city forget that the community has raised its voice in this matter and most do not want any such thing. ...IMO..The community should be the only ones to accept such a big change to its down town and no one else. (defiantly not a few elected officials, because this will change down town parking for ever in a big way).. A parking garage has been mentioned several times and I for one am all for it. It makes the most sense and doesn't take away from the life style of down town. Forcing the community to pay if they choose to park down town will only further hurt business and especially ones that are already struggling... This is one of the most athletic towns in the nation.. I don't think walking a block or two is asking to much.
Dogs can only be off leash at RVP and the pond at Spring Creek. Dogs cannot be off leash walking to the pond from the parking lot at Spring Creek. There is a sign at the parking lot that states this.
Its about time that they take notice. It has made it that my wife and I damn near have an argument on the core trail daily with someone who's dog is off leash or not pick up their dog poop.
This used to never be a problem when the men and ladies in yellow were there to warn or ticket you.
We have 3 times more people and many more dogs not to mention going from 5 police officers to 25 or so but yet for some reason Steamboat has decided to stop enforcing the leash law which has now gotten way out of hand.
I have seen him pulled over before. Got a roadside test and the drug dog was sniffing his car. They must not have foud anything beause they let him go. Pretty sure he has been under investigation for narcotics distribution for some time and it looks like that some time caught up to him.
I don't think that Twin E recycling has anything to do with the city or government. Just on whether it is a viable solution for them to stay in and continue to offer this service to its customers.
I do agree that rural areas such a ours that are far from many resources will struggle due to the cost of fuel to ship and employees to pay. I commend Twin E for thinking outside the box and looking elsewhere. Its a chance they are taking and hope that it becomes viable for them which in return will be great for Steamboat. Waste Management has been offering recycling since the 90's and now charges a fee.
I have never been a fan of pd recycling because more will end up in landfills but it may be time to except the fact that this is the way it may have to be. IMO, recycling can be sustainable and in some places is a must due to the fact that landfills are not an option. (San Francisco for example recycles over a 75% of its cities trash and is pushing for 100% with the exemption of plastic bags) They are on the extreme side of recycling due to type of area, lack of land space and surrounded by water so they really have no choice.
Very interesting on how they have accomplished such a large task.
You can check out some of it here:
Completely disagree for soo many reasons. I'm not going to get into all the reasons why recycling is very important but for now, lets just consider one: Landfill waste. This alone is worth the extra $$$ to recycle.
I would think that a company large enough to recycle has the means, know how, and enough knowledge and commonsense to realize whether it is a viable and cost effective solution. If one complains about recycling then shouldn't one complain about the most pollutant fossil fuel in the world? Hmmmm...
Thank you to the police officer who got these two off the road.....
6:23 p.m. Officers were called to a report of a suspicious incident in the 400 block of Grand Street. Someone saw a dog take a loaf of bread from a home. The dog had ransacked the home.
.......It's hard not to laugh at this police report....... And I thought we had a bear problem.....No biscuits for you...One week....
Read and listen then make up your own mind. I don't think that there is enough evidence to really place any blame yet untill further evidence from either party is brought to light.
As disturbing as the vid is, it is quite obvious that the editing from the fetus to her conversation gives me no proof that that fetus is the same she is talking about in the vid. I am not naive or closed minded and her emotions look to be true but I still dont see any proof except for what she is stating to be true.
Please read and listen to the clip here and this will only further confuse any facts that are perceived to be true. IMO. the Republicans will run heavy with this story to only further confuse those who do not do research on there own in order to boost more votes for there party.
