Entry for June 10, 2008
Mayor Pielin stepped all over colleagues and suppressed a vote before being assured it would pass at the June 3, 2008 council meeting. In the British Monarchy these powers are enjoyed by the Queen, however, she never exercises them in deference to elected government.
The $12 million improvements to the I-25/Highway 34 interchange is a good idea and so are the improved landscaping plans. However, having Loveland pay 50% of the maintenance costs while also pretending the improvements will help traffic are a step too far for the LovelandPolitics staff.
Also, feel free to comment on Larry Heckel's comments (see homepage) regarding the fact he never learns, contributes nor values the time he spends meeting on transportation issues with the MPO. This is your elected city representative. Any thoughts or comments on the video clip?
