Oh man and the best part is that The Curry Leaf is the featured deal on Amazon Local today! BOYCOTT!
Aggrieved employees should report bounced checks to the DA's Economic Crime unit by calling 520-6002. The service they provide in seeking restitution is free to the employee.
I would like to know the cost of a non-LEED fire station so we know what premium we really paid, and the payback period. If more than 5 - 8 years, then it is a bad investment.
Who decided to spend limited tax dollars this way...having seen how these decisions are made, this is ego award winning stuff around which there will be a luncheon and congratulations all around at our expense...have you all ever been to a city council meetings and seen how much time they spend fawning over city staff and themselves?
The water goal was attained because God provided the water...now as rate payers we provide the money...so was the extra revenue goal for additional bonuses attained?
Did they reach far enough into our pockets with their penalties to make enough to reward the new head of narcism, I mean head of utilities.
It was reported previously that FS21 was LEED Platinum certified. Now they are saying they should find out next year if it is or isn't?
BTW, the LEED certification thing is largely a scam. Maybe CS Indy should do an investigative report on the whole LEED program and how to become a LEED certified eningeer/contractor or how to get a building LEED certified. I think people would be shocked to learn the truth.
Superbrightled.com, leds should break even after three years, no more. With a little research, you will find much better and cheaper led elements.
All that money that used to be ours now being given to Bach's buddies for some expensive pie in the ski fantasy of developers with their hand in our pockets fro something we never wanted...I'd rather have my money back.
The developers should be responsible for initially providing this kind of infrastructure, not the city or county.
New home building is fool's gold from an economic standpoint, as the initial windfall is more than offset by the never ending burdens of staffing police and fire stations, providing utilities, maintaining roads, etc.
Hey wanna build something? Why not build it in the empty wasteland once known as Rustic Hills and Rustic Hills North? While you're at it, the side streets need patching and the weeds are like a jungle.
Well written and overall very accurate. I would clarify that the waste contract addendum now allows for composting at the mentioned facilities, not that the feasibility at these locations had been fully explored. Similarly, we worked to select a contractor willing to be innovative and try such things as a bus stop recycling pilot, but the feasibility of that too had not yet fully been explored. And, while our contractor has free access to printer recycling, the City’s specific contract does include actually performing this service. (Maybe I'm splitting hairs).
LED discrepancy may have come from the numbers provided by consultants SAIC and RW Beck. Their numbers were based on average LED streetlight costs at the time – we chose a pretty high-quality streetlight for our community, but there are less expensive brands/versions available.
In the interest of full disclosure, we held the Green Fair (a team effort) for two years, but this event had stopped before I left. We had transitioned to providing support of other community-wide events, such as Earth Month and the Colorado Sustainability Conference, once these efforts took prominence and met a similar need.
The reason there is not an Olympic Museum anywhere in the country is because no one is interested in an Olympic Museum...and shouldn't the Olympic Committee reassign some of their first class hotel and expensive dinner budget to do this right in their nice building we already paid for.
And why would we put an Academy visitor's center downtown? If we do that, we might ought to put in a Breckenridge lift ticket sales booth right next to it.
What a goof ball plan.
Hopefully they will grow food forests. Plant food trees for humanity. Imagine if each resident could get a job in their community growing a food tree forest that could feed the community for the next 100 years. Perhaps have food growing on a fruit pure terrain train track for workers to have an endless summer picking or planting calories .
Once they have a new skill,mperhaps society will find value in the product they produce, apples, in the north, oranges and pecans down south. This food train could go down to south Texas, up north to Canada, so workers could be producing wealth, following the sun!
Good point Concerned.
Do the sky socks even want to move...has anyone even asked them...I understand not.
Wish the mayor had instead put together a team to cut and spray weeds around the city. The sidewalks, medians, and right-of-ways on the east and southeast sides of town make the place look like Detroit.
Any proposal developed in a closed forum cannot be considered to be in the public interest. Glad to see the city council understands this. Too bad our mayor does not.
And $ from events like the Waldo Waldo!! http://www.thewaldowaldo.com/ !!
Any Drake study that does not include an option to leave the plant as-is must be judged as biased.
Colorado Springs , aka, 'Dream City', might instead have a "Disgraced Athlete's Hall of Fame", to include Lance Armstrong, A-Rod and the like. It hasn't been done as yet, and if Vegas can have a Mob Museum, why don't we dare to be different?
This thing doesn't really add up...it just sort of smells of the way this city has been run.
Our city is much better serviced and will be a nicer town to visit and spend money in if it is totally pristine with fixed streets, watered trees, clean side walks, than if we raise a ton of money to spread around in inflated contracts to Bach's buddies, the old developer crowd whose narcissism and greed have spoiled our city, for projects that are of little interest.
The ball park is just fine where it is. Who cares about the unneeded museums they want to destroy that whole neighborhood to put in.
The plan of the big fish in a little pond (Bach and Bortelin) is the dream of people who are so out of touch their whole lives are a fantasy.
