Back to work

Dear Editor:While Mayor Klanderud was preparing to change the guard and pass the gavel to incoming Mayor Mick Ireland, assistant city manager Steve Barwick, assistant city manager Bentley Henderson, city engineer Tricia Aragon and recycle center project manager Tyler Christoff were carrying the torch to keep certain community projects moving forward without interruption.Thank you Steve, Bentley, Tricia and Tyler for listening to the community and adding eight hours of public input into the design phase of the recycle center improvements and expansion of the skateboard park contract.The approval of the contract by Aspen’s newly elected Mayor Ireland and council members J.E. DeVilbiss, Jack Johnson, Dwayne Romero and Steve Skadron was one of the quickest approvals I have ever lobbied for.With community involvement from the beginning, I anticipate overwhelming support for the projects before it reaches P&Z and city council for approval. As soon as the staff has a schedule, the public will be notified. Hopefully those critics of mine blaming me for the mess at the current recycle center will make the time to attend the meetings to help with solutions. It’s all about teamwork!Toni KronbergAspen
