Snowmass moves up Krabloonik ownership decision

Staff report

The Snowmass Village Town Council announced Monday that it will consider the change-of-ownership proposal for Krabloonik Restaurant and Dog Sledding.

The council last week had planned the lease-transfer discussion for January, which interim owners Gina and Danny Phillips said would have affected the business's profitability for the winter season.

Without their names on the lease, the Phillipses wouldn't be able to obtain a liquor license, liability insurance or licensing for the kennel.

The council will now hear the change-of-ownership proposal during the regular council meeting Dec. 1. The town plans to include the proposal in its council packet, which will be released Thursday and available online at http://www.tosv.com.

According to a statement released by the town Monday, the proposal will likely allow the Phillipses to operate the business through the winter season as they continue to negotiate with the town on the potential transfer of the lease.

"So far, we've heard positive feedback on Krabloonik's new management, and we look forward to learning more about their long term plans for the operation," Mayor Markey Butler said. "We now have a greater understanding of their opportunities and challenges leading into winter, and we want to accommodate their request in a timely manner."
