— Steamboat Springs City Manager Deb Hinsvark continues to have the support of five of her seven bosses.

The Steamboat Springs City Council on Tuesday night expressed general satisfaction with Hinsvark’s overall work performance over the last six months.

However, council members Scott Ford and Sonja Mays still do not support the city manager.



They wanted City Attorney Tony Lettunich to work with the city manager to develop an exit package for the council to consider next month.

The majority of the council quickly rejected the proposal.



“”Deb has my support as city manager, and I think we’re going in a good direction here at the city,” Council Member Walter Magill said.

For the second time in six months, the council met with Hinsvark in executive session to evaluate her work performance.

The council used a written evaluation form, and a scorecard summary of Hinsvark’s review was publicly released.

The city manager again received high marks for her management of city finances and operations.

But the scorecard shows the council feels its partnership with Hinsvark, as well as Hinsvark’s public image, communication and community education efforts, need improvement.

Hinsvark described her closed-door review with the council as positive.

“I would classify it as a very good meeting,” Hinsvark said of the review. “We had great back and forth and a positive move forward. I think it was a good meeting.”
