Good comments, everyone. Thanks! In our green team discussions, city spending on another position wasn't characterized as the "third rail" issue it's turning out to be. However, after reading the comments and attending the City Council meetings, I can understand people's frustrations. At the next Green Team meeting (scheduled for June 6th, at 1:00 pm in Centennial Hall) I'm sure this will be a major topic of conversation.
Commentor sbvor appears to be an ardent follower of a movement that I call "The Tyranny of the Incredibly Ignorant." With the advent of the Worldwide Web, people can easily isolate themselves from all thoughts and opinions other than their own, and at the same time, choose selectively those that reinforce what they believe. Given the vastness and unchecked quality of web information, it's easy to take absurd positions and back them up with lots of references.
Not a problem. The idea of a city-funded position came up in our "other Green Team" discussions because in the past the city has set up positions and/or provided seed money for activities that benefit the Steamboat Springs community as a whole. I understand Strings in the Mountains received some sort of initial funding. Others have as well.
We figured that if the city was really serious, then they ought to put their money where their mouth is, so to speak.
Yes! Other cities who understand what sustainability truly means to their economies have funded these positions and are now way ahead of us.
