Op-ed: For the sage grouse, much is at stake in the coming year 8.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune

2016 year in review 1.1.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Scott Franz's top stories from 2016 City Council plagued by controversies The Steamboat Springs City Council hired a new city manager, advanced police station plans and spent many hours discussing the future of Howelsen Hill this year. But it was the council’s decision to call “dibs” on free Strings concert tickets and summer concert VIP lanyards that appeared to draw the strongest reaction from the community. Councilman Scott Ford even labeled the decision as “boneheaded.” After being strongly criticized for the decision, the council did one of its two revotes of the year and voted instead to adopt a new council policy that the city not accept free tickets to events it sponsors with taxpayer money. The initial story about the council’s dibs decision was Steamboat Today’s sixth most-read story of the year and the top-read story about city government. It was also only one of several stories about ethical controversies on the council. The council also found itself in hot water concerning potential ...
