In his recent commentary in the Vail Daily, Don Rogers made an excellent point about the risks and costs of litigation. In a legal conflict as complex as the current one between the Town and Traer Creek, it is likely that the only winners if it goes to trial are the lawyers.
It would certainly be wise for the town to diligently make every effort, within reason, to try to settle the matter. As Don suggested, compromise is definitely in order. However, my concept of compromise is that both parties participate, that both parties give up something, that neither party gets everything it wants.
It shouldn't be about giving Traer Creek free rein to rape, pillage, and plunder. I urge you to make your best effort to settle this matter, but within the terms of the settlement term sheet, and as much as possible, the original agreement.
But if the other party continues to make completely unreasonable demands, then I also urge you to have the backbone to draw a line in the sand and say "That's it, Magnus. No mas."
