It is mind-boggling that she cannot get this absolute basic common sense rule for driving in the mountains approved.... I lived in Summit County before the tunnels, when the tunnels were built and for a period after.... back when the chain law applied to everyone no exceptions... once it was dropped it became a zoo.... as it was again last week... ( 25 car pile up w 70 being closed for 3 hours).... There use to be a chain station at Keystone to go over Loveland pass where every vehicle of any kind was checked for chains before they were allowed tp proceed... once the tunnels opened they had one on each side... after a few years they went away and the blood bath started.... I know I was on the Fire dept.& EMS for 20+ yrs in Summit county and between Vail pass and the tunnels it got nasty every winter.....
Front wheel vehicles are the worse.... its time to go back to what worked.... especially with the rental cars...... Chains or Studded tires... end of discussion!
Well Said !!!!
The issue about coal is the conversion to natural gas thru all these pipelines being run everywhere... as in the one they just enlarged over the summer thru the back side of Hayden. I am waiting to hear the what & why for that little project they just completed... Natural gas is cheaper than coal.
With all respect Mr. Hermann..... Routt County has one government not Two, The fact that Brita was asked repeatedly by her superiors (commissioners) to report to them what the status was and what she was doing and her refusal to do so and not to forget the fact that she went outside of the County Government and hired an outside legal firm to work for her.. would in a normal business environment result in her termination.
The issue is not the fact that she did her job and got the $ due to the county but the totally unjustified manner (and possible illegal way ) in which she did it.
??? And Why did Brita not use the County Attorneys??? That's 65K that the county could have gotten for our staff attorneys already on salary?
AGAIN I ask.... WHO IS PAYING for her private attorneys... and was any of this her in HER DEPT. BUDGET??????? I would hope before the 2017 budget is adopted that this is looked at very carefully.......
The County commissioners run the county... Horn's Dept. is part of the county.... why is she not answering to her superiors????
I guess another question at some point is how is it we have a Treasurer with the only accounting experience is balancing check books and paying bills for resort hotels..
" along with a public relations firm working on behalf of Routt County Treasurer Brita Horn"
Who is paying for this public relations Firm???? Taxpayer funds and if so HOW is that allowed???
I am confused: " she and her legal counsel" how is it she not using the County's attorney's??
Who is paying for her "private" counsel??
Wife and I went to the Basin 2 weeks ago for the 1st time and were shocked ... it is without a doubt one of the most spectacular spots there is and we have been to few over the years.. to see the horses and especially their colts was awesome.... not to mention the wild remoteness and views!!!
