City hires interim police chief, public information officer for remainder of police misconduct investigation April 1, 2015
If we have had a longstanding problem at city hall it is discomforting to know that it was not addressed long ago. Does one hand not know what the other is doing? I have observed past problems that took years to address. Sometimes it seems that the lights are on
but no one is home The private sector has built in checks and balances that eventually kick in when things go awry. In public work with workers security involved it seems that there is a reluctance to "let the fur fly".
Scott, Does Gore's jet run on the same foo foo dust? Why is it that certain crowds always seem to claim the high ground when it comes to the environment? In reality we are all guilty and there are no saints. Recently Jerry Brown, a noted saint, wanted us to build him a new LAX before the oceans flooded the site. As is usually the case his math was wrong and it is not going to be submerged.
This is a mess. Well meaning folks could have solved this eons ago. Now there will be no winners.
The dialect of these blogs should have been presented by the Pilot"s editorial board. Instead we find this group willing to lead the cheers for constant government subsidies and intervention into the marketplace. How does the private sector bring about sustainability competing with do gooder schemes that seem to be the mainstay of our visionaries?
We don't need a committee of cheerleaders.
The Pilot has also envisioned what a grand deal we may be getting on the YVHA property on the Elk River parcel. Who is the arbiter willing to sign on the line that this deal is legit. Is the same agenda driven group now allowed to evaluate proposals? Is the developer leading us by the hand? Everywhere I look I see wheeler dealer wannabees run amok? Also I second Rob's post.
Will this process mimic the trails committee that spent considerable time only to be overridden by the same folks that couldn't decide anything in the first place?
Council couldn't seem to get their act together on this subject so we are going to outsource the task and then completely redo the result. Why did the council members run is they are going to abdicate their responsibility ?
Pot galore, what could possibly go wrong?
When we start trotting out the statistics it reminds me of the old days with deed restrictions and all the rest. Experts start crawling out from under every rock. The question is: do we want the government meddling in the market place? The lure of free money is more than the average social engineer can bear. The locals melt when the debt goes away even if it is nothing more than smoke and mirrors..
One fly in the ointment may be the cost of building in Routt County.
