Oak Creek town board to work on 2015 budget Thursday 25.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The Oak Creek Town Board will hear an hour-long presentation regarding its 2015 budget during a Thursday night work session. At the meeting, funding for a third police officer and a new cash reserve policy for capital improvements will be discussed. Town Administrator Mary Alice Page-Allen starts the budget process with the board in late July, and Thursday’s work session will serve as a way to spend significant time covering its specifics before she has to formally present the 2015 budget Oct. 15. Oak Creek is looking at an overall budget of about $2.25 million in 2015, Page-Allen said, including its nearly $700,000 general fund as well as its propriety funds of electric, water, sewer and trash. The town has conducted rate studies for its water and sewer systems, which also will be a part of the budget discussions Thursday. “I want all the wrinkles and policy discussions out of the way before it’s formally presented to the board,” Page-Allen said. She said she is working to put forth the new cash reserve ...

City of Steamboat Springs improving its aging stormwater system 24.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Steamboat Springs' great stormwater panic of 2013 has receded. A year after the city was grappling with the potentially enormous cost of improving its aging stormwater system, the city has started to revamp its stormwater maintenance program without busting its budget or assessing property owners a new fee to help cover the cost. The city also is earning kudos as it starts to adopt the recommendations of a much-praised citizen task force that spent more than 500 volunteer hours analyzing the city's storm water infrastructure. "We've historically maintained maybe a dozen culverts per year, and typically we're just chasing problems and complaints," Kelly Heaney, the city's new water resources manager, said last week as she briefed the council on the improvements. "This year with the additional resources we were able to maintain 45 culverts in less than two months." Steamboat City Council members liked what they heard. The biggest changes the city has made this year include hiring Heaney, increasing the ...
