A Soroco High School teacher mentioned to me that, this past year, she has lost, on average, one teaching day per week due to student absences for sports, band, FFA, etc. By going to a four day school week, not only will the district save money, but the students will be more present for school, given that the intent of keeping those four days "sacred" is followed.
Keep it simple ...
Way to go, Emily and Rayna!
You all have totally missed the point. The prevalence of the attitude in Steamboat that "rules don't apply to me" is disgusting. How many "No Trespassing" signs does it take for people to get the point that they should not be biking, fishing, walking their dogs, etc? I applaud the decision to let the owners do something to prevent the flagrant disregard for rules.
"600 employee trips between home and office to save 17,000 miles of car driving". The math does not add up. 17,000 divided by 600 is over 28 miles for a round trip commute. 17,000 divided by 650 is over 26 miles. I very highly doubt that the AVERAGE commute by bike is 13 or 14 miles one way.
What about getting to Alpine Bank?
As an avid biker, I avoid 129 for that very same reason.
Meters on Lincoln Avenue would regulate the use of space to the maximum, instead of people leaving the space for half of a car between cars, thus reducing parking capacity. Let the meters take coins or credit cards.
Your idea does not eliminate employees using the spaces while at work.
I believe the conflict has existed since the present Steamboat superintendent has been around. The voters voted to have the funds distributed to community groups and to the other two school districts in the county, but some individuals believe that the money belongs to just one school district.
