City Council renews lease with communications firm

The City Council met briefly Tuesday night, although not much was discussed.

During the 15-minute meeting, council members discussed the city’s new lease agreement with Level 3 Communications. The original agreement, which began in 2000, allowed the city to lease land in Eldorado Valley to Level 3 Communications, formerly known as Williams Communications.

Level 3 Communications is a global communications provider headquartered in Broomfield, Colo., and provides communications services to enterprise, government and carrier customers.

Level 3 Communications will pay the city $117,040 from 2015 until the lease is over at the end of 2019. The total equates to $23,408 per year.

From 2001-05, it paid Boulder City an average of $13,520 per year.

Council head fakes on pet breeding vote

It may seem to some as ironic that, at the same meeting where the lead animal control officer for the city spoke passionately about animals being abandoned by their owners in the desert around Boulder City and in which the council made clear that they expect city staff to return with a proposal for mandating microchipping of pets, that the city council considered a bill to amend city code to allow for pet breeding and fostering of up to eight dogs on a property within city limits.

To chip or not to chip?

In its second time at the plate, as it were, the proposal by Boulder City Councilmember Cokie Booth to require that pets within BC be microchipped ended up with a lot of people talking about maybe taking a swing at the ball but no one actually doing so.
