Virtual Town Halls

COVID-19 InfoInformation is moving quickly and changing even faster around COVID-19, especially as it pertains to our community. The city and county, in conjunction with the Steamboat Pilot & Today, are hosting a series of virtual town halls to share information on a variety of topics.

“Through this forum, we hope to provide some of the answers to the more pressing questions our community has on a more constant basis,” commented Steamboat Springs City Council President Jason Lacy. “

Town hall topics will touch upon business, mental health, local government, education, health and more. 

“We believe there is a need to get this valuable information to our community,” said Routt County Commission Chair Tim Corrigan. “We’re all in this together and by sharing as much information as possible, we’ll all be in a better place to make decisions moving forward.”
