Martha D Young 1 month ago on Our View: New river park tops the list

When exactly will the sidewalks on Yampa St. be built? Dodging car traffic on Yampa St. both as a pedestrian and cyclist gives me pause to wonder why a "pocket park" takes precedence over human safety. Since when are public sidewalks the responsibility of the property owner and not the city, as on Oak St.? Your question about taxation deserves a reply.


Martha D Young 2 months ago on Rob Douglas: Who’s driving city policy?

If I can believe what I read, Hinsvark is a rerun of Roberts. Land swap negotiations unknown to Council? Astounding.


Martha D Young 2 months, 1 week ago on Committee will discuss privatizing Routt County Regional Building Department

Please do not outsource the building department. Unless there's a monumental cost savings to be gained, we Routt County citizens need our building department to be staffed by local people, not outsiders.


Martha D Young 3 months, 1 week ago on Mainstreet Steamboat resolved to get funding for downtown business improvement district passed in November

Last time around the tenants of the buildings whose taxes would increase voted in the BID election. Since the building owners shift the tax burden to their tenants, tenants have a right to vote. No taxation without representation.
