Town of Basalt

Marci Krivonen

This week we’ve been reporting on some of the tax measures that are on the November ballot. One question Basalt voters will see concerns the restoration of the Roaring Fork River running through town. Question 2B seeks permission from voters to issue $5 million worth of bonds. The dollars would help move along a project that began with the removal of mobile homes in danger of flooding. Opponents of the measure says it’s rife with problems. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen reports.

The relocation of families living in 38 mobile homes in Basalt is moving forward. Last night Basalt’s City Council passed several measures designed to move the residents out of the trailer park as a step towards redevelopment of the property. As Marci Krivonen reports, the meeting room was packed with people on both sides of the plan.

The effort to relocate dozens of residents in Basalt’s Pan and Fork Mobile Home Park is underway. Town staff met with residents in eight homes on Monday. They’re trying to find out what kind of replacement housing would suit each, individual household. As Marci Krivonen reports, it’s a task unlike any other the Town has taken on.
