Live updates from the Steamboat Springs City Council meeting

— The Steamboat Springs City Council is set to decide tonight whether the city’s trash ordinance should be strengthened to require more residents to have wildlife-proof containers.

After a year during which three bears were hit by cars in the city and many more were the subject of more than 100 emergency calls, the city, trash collectors and Colorado Parks and Wildlife are hoping the new rules can lead to fewer problems with the animals and ultimately save their lives.

City reporter Scott Franz will provide news updates below on this and all the other discussions the city council takes this evening:
