Rec center cost study complete

— City Council voted Tuesday night to “accept” but not to “approve” a feasibility study for a new recreation center that might cost as much as $7 million to build and $300,000 annually to operate. The difference in terms was meant to convey that while City Council deems the feasibility report to be complete, it is in no way approving or “taking on” the project.

“This must be a community-led project,” Council President Kevin Bennett said.

“I’m wary of taking all that is in here and accepting it as ours,” Councilman Bud Romberg agreed.

For an in-depth look at the feasibility study, see this week’s Steamboat Pilot.
