Tracker: Avon Town Council 7/24/07

Matt Terrell
Vail, CO Colorado

How they voted: Approved unanimously.

What they said: City Market in Avon used to provide wall space to post public notices, but due to policy changes, most of the space will be used for paid advertising. Avon Library will take its place and post notices on the bulletin board in the front desk area.

What this means to you: If you want to find out when a town council meeting is, you won’t find it at City Market. Check the library instead.



How they voted: approved unanimously.

What they said: Eagle County will provide a minimum of 32 hours of patrol a month and 24 hours per day of emergency on call service. They’ll provide animal shelter service, investigate animal bites and enforce the leash law.



What this means to you: It will cost the town $1,512 a month, but without Eagle County, Avon police would be providing a much more limited service.

How they voted: approved unanimously.

What they said: A temporary boiler system was proposed to provide snowmelt for the transportation center in the 2007-2008 ski season. This would have cost more than $350,000. When shown that the carbon footprint for conventional snow removal would be much smaller than the footprint for a temporary boiler, the council decided not to go through with the temporary system.



What this means to you: It’s hard to say when a centralized boiler system and snowmelt will be in place.
