[ARCHIVED] Council Lunch & Listen Menu Set

Lunch-Listen NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-January 7, 2020-Across the ranching community, meal time provided the chance for everyone to come together and take a break from their work and catch up on the latest news and happenings while sharing their thoughts. That same spirit is the inspiration behind Council’s Lunch & Listen Series, which debuts on Friday, January 17.

Individual City Councilors host this monthly opportunity to gather over lunch and listen to the community. During this brown bag series, bite into fun discussion about topics coming before council in the work session for the following month.

Trade points of perspective and maybe even that coveted lunch item with others around the table. The goal is to provide a chance for community members to meet with council members in a relaxed atmosphere and digest various topics of interest across the valley. 

Sessions are currently scheduled as follows with discussion topics outlined below:

January 17 – Councilor Sonja Macys
