Snowmass council to vote on 2013 budget

SNOWMASS - The Snowmass Village Town Council has a lot on its plate for its regular meeting today.

Among several other agenda items, the council will vote on a resolution that would adopt the 2013 financial budget for the town, with the adjustments requested by the officials at their budget retreat on Sept. 25.

The council also will take a first reading of amendments to the 2012 budget. Per the home rule charter, the Town Council adopts its budget by resolution but must approve two readings of an ordinance to make amendments to it.

The meeting also will encompass a public hearing on the 2013 Road Mill Levy Fund. A majority of available funds will go to overlaying asphalt on certain stretches of road next year, according to the packet prepared for today's meeting.

The council also is slated to provide feedback on changes being proposed to the Aspen-Pitkin County Airport that might affect the town, including economic impacts associated with growth and physical changes, primarily an additional fixed-base operator planned off of Owl Creek Road.

The council also will vote on a second reading of an ordinance creating an entertainment district for common consumption areas in Snowmass Village.
