Fire Funding Offset Focus of September Coffee with Council


Casual, Open Format Allows Discussion Of Featured Topic or Any Question
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-September 11, 2018-Join Councilman Scott Ford and other
available council members for Coffee with Council scheduled for Friday, September 14 from 7:30am
to 9:00am. The September session will focus on the issues associated with the Fire District Inclusion
election and how the previously allocated funds will help address the city’s ongoing fiscal
sustainability concerns.
With a successful election, the city will investigate avenues to distribute an estimated $1.86 million,
which plays a vital role in maintaining or increasing services and infrastructure programs currently
facing funding challenges. For example, should these funds be directed toward Steamboat Springs
Transit; the city’s street paving plan; Parks & Recreation; tax reductions/rebates or other new ideas to
address the council’s primary goal of fiscal sustainability?
As the city discusses its 2019 budget, staff is working to address a significant gap in funding for
current services enjoyed by residents. The Fire/Emergency Services Funding Offset topic is schedule
to come before City Council during its September 18 meeting, and again, at the October 9 meeting.
While the city budget is slated for Council review during an all-day budget retreat on October 2.
Coffee with Council sessions are typically held the second Friday of each month in the Crawford
Room of Centennial Hall (124 10th Street). The goal is to provide an opportunity for community
members to meet with city council members in a relaxed atmosphere and discuss any issues of
interest to them. Other cities and towns in Colorado have also adopted this approach in order to
increase interaction between council and community members, and to promote greater transparency
in city business.
No RSVP is necessary, community members are welcome to drop by to discuss any issues of
interest to them. Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.
