So what you are saying is that he knew the dangers inherit to his condition but made a conscious decision to operate a vehicle knowing the inherent dangers his operating could pose ??????? If thats the case then its certainly borders on reckless endangerment or manslaughter.
Scott... I cannot seem to find the Sauna, Hot Tub and swimming pool in the report......considering all the bells and whistle this momument has & they are planning... I would think they would need this to reduce their stress from all the walking they have to do in this Taj Mahal
so this guy get more time than the guy who killed the German motorcyclist is facing????
10 days to 1 year for killing a human being ???? By the time this gets plead down what probation and some community service time at the library???
The Pilot reported in the original story that "Penfold was upset".... I imagine the survivors of this careless act will be even more so when they see how Penfold gets to walk away for all intensive purposes....
If there is a gap in pay... it is the part time or seasonal employee's who receive no benefits and much lesser pay....
When this "pay review" was put together, it should be the whole cost or value of what full time employees actually get.. not just their weekly salary numbers.
Saying your making 45K a year as equipment operator without including what the city pays in free health insurance, paid days off etc is a very misleading. There are very very few private sector jobs in this area that provide the type of package that the city as an employer does....
If there is a "turnover" problem than it should be made public what positions those are and why.... I would suspect it is in finding seasonal employee's .... that the issue is not about turnover but the fact that seasonal staff do the same work usually under worse working conditions but make 25% less with none of the full time benefits.
Just how many positions is the city trying to fill and why are those positions vacant in the 1st place???? Pilot do some reporting please!! Once again we have 2 governments in this town... the elected and the city staff... who's is leading who????
Why not wait a 2 weeks for the new city council?????
we can do nothing about China.... my point is thru the EPA we have cleaned up and prevented similiar things here at home.... And while they may at times go overboard.... it has done far more good..... one has only to look around at the abandoned mines in our own backyard and realize what happens when there are no watchdogs....
Mr Kuechenmeister please explain what is happening to many of the Chinese cities in a country where there are no rules.... and tell me how man there does not impact the environment!!!!!
Take the time and look at this stunning satellite photo... http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2013/10/25/smog-coal-debate
Look at this satellite photo and tell us how the EPA has been so out of line to prevent this from happening here????
-When your buddy Cheney led us on his "Christian crusade to kill the infidel's" in Iraq and Saddam blew up Cheney's oil wells.. have you forgotten those graphic photo's and massive environmental damage that to this day still ravage that country????
-I guess you forget what NYC & LA use to look like in the 60's / 70s Do you remember the smog cloud you would descend into as you came down Floyd hill into Denver ????
Seems to me your living in a cloud.....
Scott what do you expect when the city hired an outside firm specializing in Police Stations... all the whistles the bells and then some.... did you notice
most of the featured photo's were not from Mtn towns..... AS you know Arvada PD has much in common w Steamboat... NOT!!!!!!
Guess they never heard of Frisco, Silverthorne, Breckenridge etc etc etc... Frisco PD shares its facilities w the city hall... with the support at another site w Public Maintenance... (for the past 30+yrs) novel concept ??? Not to mention these Dept.'s are far more busy than here in 'da Boat!!!!
"enhance the pedestrian experience on Yampa Street." ????
What is the poorest worst pedestrian experience in Steamboat???? OAK STREET!!!
Whenever there is Farmers Market or any event / incident that closes Lincoln... You take your life in your hands trying to walk anywhere on or navigate Oak street...... The diversion of all hwy40 traffic onto a basically country road especially in winter can be a very harrowing experience especially when you have Large Tractor trailers utilizing the same surface with
Pedestrian experience on Yampa St??? Please !!!! If the city is concerned about safety and pedestrians address Oak street 1st !!!!
Hopefully this public buyout of private of private property that cannot be sold on the upcoming ballot issue will be defeated.
