Call from state officials prompts Steamboat officials to reverse decision on city hall

From Spencer Powell, Steamboat Pilot and Today

From about 9:30 to 11 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, Steamboat Springs City Council weighed the city‘s options for the heating ventilation and cooling system at the planned new city hall and fire station building.

City Council eventually decided 4-3 to direct city staff to move forward with an all-electric system in a move that was viewed as a compromise between controlling costs and sustainability.

“This was a tough one,” said council member Robin Crossan. “Thank you all very much for your passion.”
