Gov’t Tracker: Vail Town Council 2/20/07

How they voted

Yes: Foley, Gordon, Hitt, Logan, Moffet, Slifer

What they talked about: A proposal would require that buildings improve their signals for radios of firefighters, police officers or other public safety officials if there is poor reception.



Because some of the new buildings in Vail are made of thick concrete and steel that blocks radio signals, public safety officials are having trouble using their radios. The law would require that buildings of more than 25,000 square feet install “amplification” systems if radio signals are too weak.

What they did: Council gave preliminary approval to the proposed law.



What’s next? Final approval is slated for the March 13 meeting. Existing buildings would have 18 months to be notified by fire officials on what improvements would be needed, and another 18 months to comply.

How they voted:

Yes: Foley, Gordon, Hitt, Logan, Moffet, Slifer



What they talked about: This proposed law allows municipal use of off-highway vehicles within the town’s boundaries, except for the frontage road. The town bought a couple of carts with truck beds to be used for park maintenance.

What they did: The council gave preliminary approval to the proposed law.

What’s next? Final approval is slated for the March 13 meeting

How they voted:

What they talked about: A few council members will be absent from the scheduled March 6 meeting, so the meeting is being pushed back to March 13.

What’s next? The March 13 meeting should include a discussion of the proposed employee housing rules as well as a discussion on the Lionshead parking structure redevelopment.
