Sorry to hear it. I enjoyed working with Joe. Even when we disagreed, which wasn't often, Joe was never mean-spirited. He simply let you know exactly how he felt, with no beating around the bush. I can still hear that booming voice and great laugh. Good man.
Thank you, Bill. I've always believed that if you catch someone in the act of doing something good, you should let them know, and you've done so wonderfully.
Although one hopes that the book itself spells Papa's name correctly.
Every year, over $400,000 of community needs go unmet because the City is required to spend the money on the exorbitant Iron Horse Inn payments. At the same time, Council is telling staff to "fix" the bus schedule problems NOW, despite Council's having made the budget cuts that caused the problems in the first place. Wouldn't it be nice to have an extra $400,000 to meet our really important needs? How long, O Council, will you drag your feet?
Such a good guy. Always positive, always willing others to see the glass as nearly full.
I'm with Bill Schurman: Smashburger! The Colorado Burger is the best.
Good job, Dave, and thank you for all you did to make YVRA into a modern, smoothly-functioning operation. Good luck down there in the banana belt.
Such a shame, but knowing Lynne, she will find a way to reopen--downtown--subito.
Only some of the crew trekked back to civilization, and I believe it's the Lena Delta. It was a wonderful read.
Fred, as you know, I was not with the City then. My best guess is that the City Attorney, Finance Officer, and the City's bond counsel would have been asked to review the proposed funding and told Council that it was something that it could legally do. As to where the idea originated, I have no idea. My point is that the purchase was rushed through during a campaign season, and the public had no real chance to weigh in. When the purchase was scheduled for second hearing, I asked when on the agenda it was scheduled. I showed up 15 minutes before the scheduled vote and was informed that the vote had taken place almost an hour before. It was clear to me at that point that the purchase and funding were faits accompli.
