I can't resist this. For that much money CPD can have a brandy new shack built for them. With a all new 'cross bar hotel', and all new city offices, all new city facilities, all in one place. Oh whoops what about next year when you have to pay someone to work there... that place is more messed up than 'hogans goat'. Quit fiddling around and get serious about taking care of the people instead of who has more stroke the city or the county. For a million bucks you can build a 'almost as good as what you got' building that you don't have to share. But wasn't that the original idea, to share space and keep costs down for all involved, oh oh oh and don't forget the centralized communications center for the western slope (I think that's what the idea was) CSP, MCSO, CPD etc...I'm sorry, when I see people as blessed as we are squabbling over such minor crap and then see the great tragedy in Japan, where I spent some time in training in the late 1960's in a place called the Northern Training Area or NTA as the USMC called it. It don't exist anymore, it was deactivated I understand, and just as well, it was washed away along with the poor people who reclaimed it. You need to get it together and thank whatever Providence you believe in that you even have the opportunity to argue about it

"I'm sorry, when I see people as blessed as we are squabbling over such minor crap and then see the great tragedy in Japan, "

Wow, I have to undoubtedly agree on that statement. As my grandma used to say "you don't have a pot to piss in". Funny thing is that she was right 99.9% of the time, and, the USA right now is missing a pot.. Let the tragedy in Japan become a learning point for the rest of us, life as we know it is fragile and time is wasted on such trivial pursuits.

The BOCC seem to be a bit conflicted. They are willing to spend months doing all that they can to scoop the MCTA&EDP under the Chamber's rug. Including micro-managing, re-aligning a board, and taking a firm stand behind a board other than the one they entrusted tourism in Moffat County to. Citing that the county is better for having the Chamber/EDP/MCTA all in the same stop shopping, if you will...than they are in different locations fulfilling their similar but different missions.

However, they are struggling to see how doing all that they can to make sure that our Law Enforcement is under one roof is the right thing to do. Whether it be City, County, or State, Law enforcement's only mission is just that. The jurisdictions may differ, but the mission is arguably the same.

With the overlap of council members on the chamber board, it's surprising that they also have a hard time seeing the similarities in the "shotgun wedding" of the tourism fringe and the "forced separation" of our law enforcement.

Until the article came out a few days ago that said that only utilities and maintenance would be required after the ten years. If that is indeed true, then that is all the county should get. A share of the cost of utilities and maintenance. And if that is indeed true the the County Commissioners should be charged with fraud, tried and jailed.

regardless of what the cost of utilities are, the commissioners should be charged with fraud and jailed just because...I agree.
