Vail Daily letter: Rushed process

It appears that the Vail Town Council and the Vail Valley Foundation have had clandestine discussions to consider and rush to the approval of the proposed KAABOO Music Festival in August 2017 and thereafter without having properly informed the citizens of Vail and given them adequate time to consider the benefits and drawbacks of the proposed event, which might have serious adverse impacts for the entire town and its residents. The sub-rosa nature of the progress of these discussions and the rushed time table smack of under-handed dealing. Furthermore, it seems inappropriate for the Vail Valley Foundation, an alleged “charitable” foundation, to be partnering with the promotors of this event. It sounds like they are promoting a mega version of the Avon disaster of a few years ago.
