Briefs for Oct. 1, 2003

Public welcome to attend election forums Oct. 15

The Steamboat Pilot & Today and KRMR radio will host a pair of election forums Oct. 15. A midday forum will be from noon to 2 p.m. at Centennial Hall and an evening forum will be from 7 to 9 p.m. at Olympian Hall.

Because of the number of Steamboat Springs City Council and School Board candidates attending and several ballot issues that will be discussed, questions will not be accepted from the audience during the forums. Instead, residents are encouraged to submit questions in advance to sstanford@steamboatpilot.com or krmrtalk@yahoo.com by Oct. 8.

The questions posed to candidates during the forums will be chosen from those received by the newspaper and KRMR radio.
