Referendum committee counting signatures

The referendum committee that hopes to bring the city of Steamboat Springs’ annexation of Steamboat 700 to referendum says it has collected an estimated 1,000 signatures from city residents.

Committee members were verifying the signatures against voter registration rolls Tuesday.

Petitioners must collect at least 829 signatures by Nov. 12 to trigger the referendum process.

City officials also will vet signatures once they are turned in.
