Since I am not familiar with the differences between this development proposal and the original Steamboat 700 developers proposal ...what are the differences?
The City leash law is not a difficult law to understand. It simply says leash your dog. It does not say except here or there or except this time or place. Simply leash your dog. So, folks, leash your dog. If you do not, expect if caught, you will get a ticket.
If the city needs more special off leash areas go ahead and work to set them up.
Otherwise enforce the current leash laws please.
You say .. I HAVE JUST HEARD from too many people that the level and manner in which they are patrolling Emerald, Stehly, the mountain, Fetcher Pond, Spring Creek and these types of places has been more like the big cities many people chose to escape. .........Do you mean efficient law enforcement? ACO's doing their jobs?
You say ...Boulder has adopted a successful Voice and Site licensing program where more than 90% of their 70 square miles of open space (that is a key huh open space) are available to dogs with the SV license. Who cares what Boulder does, it is not Steamboat.
The city of Steamboat has had lease laws for a very long time for reasons. Inside the city limits may not be the place for folks to play frisbee with their dogs. Folks with dogs should be smart enough to find the correct legal places to play frisbee without breaking current laws.
Again if you want the law change talk with city council.
Molly, et All:
Using your figures in 2013 the salary and benefits budget for animal control officers was $168,190. Also you said they bring in about $100,000 per year in fines where folks do not obey the current laws. That says the cost to the city is about $68,190 for two animal control officers. So, if we knew the exact job description of these animal control officers, we could discuss that, but it appears they are trying to insure the current city laws are followed. So, if you do not like the current law engage the city council to change it, but do not try to in affect harass the animal control officers or the police department for doing their assigned job. In addition we should be glad that the current animal control officers no longer are responsible for cleaning and running the animal shelter.
You said ...The current council appears to care more about the bottom line than providing community resources. Are you saying the city council should forego all other city needs and forego their fiduciary requirements to just go forward with the JUA? Are you crazy? Who should be paying for HH year after year? My guess a reworked up to date fair JUA is the best path forward.
I wonder what Tony is really thinking by this action?
I almost feel sorry for his decision. He is nuts to be kind to him.
Much worst could be said.
Tony please come to your senses and recant.
Interesting enough there are many Condominium complexes which do not allow any pets per their declaration. There are also Condominium complexes which do allow pets only for owners (not renters) but with strict rules. Wonder why that is? Guess might be easier to enforce a no pet rule than a pet violation rule. Wonder what the new rental development rule on pets will be?
Doesn't the state Democratic Party fund their delegate's attendance to the national convention to insure they get this votes? Contact the Clinton Foundation!
Great Job Krista!
Cory, your team is awesome!
Many thanks for their tireless work, day in and day out!
