Less hype, more action

Dear Editor:I found out an interesting fact: The city of Aspen pays no electric bill. Their electric bill is added to all city of Aspen electric customers. This covers electric use for City Hall, streetlights, city shop, the golf course, Red Brick and Yellow Brick Community buildings and the ice arena.No electric bill means no budget and no thought of conservation. Just another nail in the coffin of the “Canary Initiative,” which is more hype than action.Ron ThompsonAspen
