I use the library. I think the library staff is great and very helpful. I also would like to see the cost per checkout for each item to the taxpayers of Routt County. My property taxes went up appreciably when the new library was built. The building is beautiful but expensive. I was doing fine with the old library. Something for you taxpayers to consider when the next bond issue comes up for the next Taj Mahal.

5,000 to 6,000 per month for a van? Which is it? Parks and Rec used to have a serviceable van. Rode to a Rockies game on it with an outstanding driver. Do they still have it? 18,000 would be a good chunk of buying a van. Anybody think about that?
What would Alpine Taxi have charged for this? It is so easy to criticize government at all levels because it is so incompetent!

I have no financial interest in Alpine Taxi and do not work for them although I did drive for them about 13 years ago or so. I also drove City bus about 12 years ago. I also drove a dump truck, Meadows shuttle, Porches shuttle, propane truck , and delivery truck to Grand County for 6 years. Wow, I could not keep a job until I started driving a delivery truck. .

Cats are a delicacy in South East Asia also and south Texas until the Vietnamese became Americanized. Give the Vietnamese credit, they pretty much put American shrimpers out of business because they worked harder. They now control the nail salons of Colorado and Arizona because they will work longer and harder than native born Americans. Actually many of the nail salon owners are now native born Americans. Bring on the cries of racism you liberal left winger socialists.
