Politics is heating up in Basalt and now that the town manager up and resigned, the government and its elected leaders are facing heavy scrutiny.
Sentiment grows to bring back Basalt town managerAngry speakers wants Basalt Town Council to make peace with ScanlonBasaltines sad, angry over Town Manager Scanlon’s departureScanlon submits termination and severance notice to BasaltBasalt council was upset that Scanlon loan repayment wasn’t secured
And amidst all of it, the town council is considering asking voters to approve a multi-million dollar bond question on the fall ballot to develop the Pan and Fork parcel.
In Aspen, city council members are still debating the merits of building a new city hall.
But what would go in old city hall is a big question.
Joining me this week are Curtis Wackerle, editor of the Aspen Daily News, Scott Condon, reporter for Aspen Times, Cindy Hirschfeld, editor of Aspen Sojourner Magazine and Roger Marolt, columnist for the Aspen Times.
