Stephen Jones 4 days, 12 hours ago on Ed Miklus: City manager solved

With the presumption the interim city manager has the ability to bring the city staff up to a quality staff, then a first indication that Gary should be seriously considered for the next city manager, is how fast can this quality upgrade be done or the replacement of staff who do not meet the quality requirements. Either staff performs given the correct direction (or quickly train them if that is the issue) or replace them.

This staff upgrade concern will demonstrate how valuable Gary can be to Steamboat.

Stephen Jones 3 weeks, 5 days ago on 18 community members vying for seats on city's golf committee

I hope the committee endorses a robust Junior Golf Program for ages 12-18 years and a First Tee Program. A First Tee Program helps develop character attributes in young folks through the game of Golf. A Junior Golf Program continues development after First Tee putting in practice on the golf course with real responsible competition teaching our children and supervising adults how to treat each other. Thanks.

Stephen Jones 1 month ago on City shares conceptual plans for Yampa Street improvements

Good Morning Scott, - Thank you for your response. Therefore is it a good barometer to say that any 1-250 watt HPS Decorative light and 25’ pole that the charge which includes electricity, maintenance and replacement of the pole is your $756 number annually? A great job of a sidewalk was recently constructed on Village Drive by the City Engineering Department and Duckels Construction without street lights and for safety we need lighting. I was trying to determine an appropriate cost. Appreciate you insight.

Stephen Jones 1 month ago on City shares conceptual plans for Yampa Street improvements

The drawing looks great and it is very timely and certainly needed. Will the city also put in street lights for safety at night? If yes, who pays for the lights and for the electricity. (A common question) When the project is done put it in first class so all can benefit and be a talk of the town.

Stephen Jones 2 months ago on Heather Sloop: Sloop explains position

Yes, thank you for your letter. I guess I am just sad that you had to feel you had to write it in the first place. All your excuses etc again are just sad as so many folks had such high hopes for you and your actions dashed those hopes. You should resign. All the best in the future.

Who is supposed to do the "Due Diligence" of the board members prior to the election in the first place? Is there not a process?

Stephen Jones 3 months, 2 weeks ago on Search firms outline how they would recruit new city manager in Steamboat Springs

I simply wonder what is the real benefit of the current almost gone city council starting a process of finding a new city manager. They should simply stop the process and move to let the newly elected council do their job. Why not?

Stephen Jones 5 months, 3 weeks ago on City council likely to discuss HInsvark succession plan Sept. 1

I think I missed something. Why can not the city council manage the role since the city manager's role reports to the city council. Are they not capable enough to do so? The role is not expected to be forever. It then leaves a new city council to decide exactly what to do after November elections.
