Steve Skadron

Last week, Aspen officials put a stop to a proposed entrance to Aspen plan.

 

The elected officials of Pitkin County, Snowmass Village and the City of Aspen meet quarterly to talk transportation. They were briefed by consultant Ralph Trapani, who told them that the best option for the entrance to Aspen is a route from the roundabout, through Marolt Open Space and then onto Main Street.

 

Aspen Mayor Steve Skadron has joined 17 other elected officials around the state urging Colorado’s congressmen to support the Bureau of Land Management’s methane rule.

A letter signed by 18 mayors of cities and towns around the state was sent yesterday to Senators Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet. The letter states how the rule ensures fair return to taxpayers, improves our air quality, and cuts energy waste.

It’s a two-man race for Mayor of Aspen this spring. Incumbent Steve Skadron is hoping for one more term. Challenging him for the seat is Lee Mulcahy.
