Taxpayer 2 years, 1 month ago on Letter: Moffat County a beautiful place to visit

Whew! The heat must have gotten to that person giving them blisters of the brain. If they have questions about the MCTA budget, expenses, etc., it is public information and available. I am enthused that our visitors are enjoying what Moffat County has to offer them, and I am very happy people are taking the time to tell their friends about their experiences here. It is exactly what MCTA is working to achieve through their vision and being positive about the future of tourism in Moffat County. It is a WIN-WIN for everyone!

What a nice letter reflecting what visitors to our area enjoyed about seeing what Moffat County has to offer guests and residents. We are so fortunate to have a director of the Moffat County Visitor Information Center, Melody Villard. She had a vision of a new and unique perceptive of how to show off our area with ample parking, and a friendly staff. Thanks to the Board of MCTA, who didn't flinch from their duty and Melody’s vision when the vocal minority was displeased and failed to grasp the vision of what a good information center needed to provide for residents and visitors. Thanks to all of those businesses in the County and residents who stepped up to make this new center a reality! Well done to everyone! This is an example of forward thinking and a willingness to work with a diversified team to make this center a very pleasant, rewarding, educational , informative, and friendly experience.

Tom Gray made a mistake but he is man enough to write a letter to the community, admitting the mistake, and know he would have to handle the comments from the community too. He stands tall in my book! Thanks for showing the others how a man conducts himself after making a poor decision.

I agree, but they own the land and can build there unless the neighbors work to stop it. I think they should use the Hayden training tower, and save the $1.5 expenidure along with the annual operating expenses for it. Another waste of money, taxpayer money for something that is not needed when there is a tower which can be readily used. Thisis what happens when a mill levy isn't sunseted --- and perhaps a lack of leadership or empire building.

It costs $300 a day to use the Hayden facility. So, at $1.5 million, using the existing Hayden training tower, 20 days a year, they could use it for 250 years! And what will the new training tower's operating expenses be annually? Gosh, did someone have a brain freeze or just want to leave a legacy for themselves It would appear that the management at the Craig Rural Fire Department has organizational and scheduling deficiencies. Perhaps a change of management would resolve those problems. Or a removal or lowering of the mill levy might be the next solution. Slam dunks are usually achieved in basketball games! A big Thank You to the CNCC Board!

When you own a business, you are on call 24/7 and while that is a decision a person makes owning a business, most of us don't have a lot of sympathy for those you make a career and then complain about the hours, on-call time, etc. it appears all of the employees will get larger paychecks from "improving" at the hospital by getting more patients. I wonder why we keep losing such good physicans, and from the comments here, it appears that those who "monitor and control" are those causing the problems. Interesting way to run a County owned hospital. Does anyone check up on this allegations? Or are the ostrichs still in charge?

And can you believe some of the people selected as leaders of our community - what a farce!

Too bad we can't put a red tag on vicious humans and give them two strikes rather than three. I am sorry the bear had to be put down, but if he had lost his fear of humans, then he became too dangerous for the community.

Taxpayer 2 years, 4 months ago on Residents share feedback with Craig fire board on proposed training center

The land isn't free, we taxpayers paid for that land, and I don't think we should give it away for "free". Everyone who works for the public usually misses a lot of family time. This is not about the work our fire personnel perform, nor the sacrifices they make, it's about spending money that isn't needed to be spent. As soon as that petition comes around, there will be a lot of signatures to remove the mill levy.
