Through your leadership we are being taxed more than ever, city services are being taken away, residents are being asked to do more, good workers have lost their jobs while patronage appointments continue, infrastructure continues to deteriorate, crime is rising and our business community is in a shambles! Glad the BIIP pledged for more transparent government ... Clearly in it for yourselves and the Democrat party. We'll remember at election time!

Bud Light Donates $500K to Descend on Town, Council Approves

Aug 28, 2014, 9:42 PM

One small mountain town in Colorado is apparently "up for whatever."

The town council in Crested Butte, Colorado, approved a special permit allowing Bud Light to take over the town for a three-day event "of unexpected fun," ABC affiliate KMGH-TV in Denver reported today.

Bud Light, one of Anheuser-Busch's beer brands, doubled its original donation for the town to $500,000. The event will turn the town into a fictitious one: Whatever, USA.

"Ever since we were first approached by Bud Light earlier this summer, we've been impressed with the creativity and level of detail they've put into the planning process for Whatever, USA,” Crested Butte Mayor Aaron Huckstep said in a statement released by the beer brand. "This is going to be an incredible event for our community that will help bring the beauty of Crested Butte to 1,000 new visitors."

Crested Butte was selected because of "its breathtaking natural beauty and colorful cast of characters," according to a statement from Bud Light.

The plan had its critics. One resident, former Colorado Sen. Tim Wirth, called the originally proposed $250,000 donation a "paltry and insulting sum."

"My own view is that this is truly an inappropriate function for a town that has built its reputation so carefully," Wirth told ABC News. "It should cost them a pretty penny and they won’t even notice it."

Bud Light's "UpForWhatever" ad campaign began during the Super Bowl, in which random people on the street, seemingly between the ages of 21 and 35, are whisked off to celebrity-laden adventures. In Bud Light commercials for the town of Whatever, USA, there's a fake, bearded mayor.

For this specific campaign in Colorado, the company will select 1,000 Bud Light fans across the United States who auditioned with a 10-second video explaining why they should be flown into Whatever, USA. Winners will be notified 48 hours before the trip.

The audition deadline is next Thursday and more than 150,000 people have applied so far.

so true, a party here, a parade there, and the city is crumbling. How many consultants do they need? Everyone the Mayor appointed is a joke. They blame the Chamber for everything.

November election, liquidation of all assets, revised employee hand books, distribution of funds to appointees via created jobs, no bid contracts, provides answers.

What the heck is this? 2.5% for residential and 5% fee for commercial on rehab projects via a building permit?
Will that really help the city rebuild? Thanks BIIP.

Property values have tanked. More foreclosures and walkaways than sales.
Fees and property taxes have increased; services decreased.

The only thing that it will accomplish will be less renovations around town. JR doesn't live here and Vargas doesn't own a house here, so what do they really care about what you have to pay.

Other communities balance their budgets by not ripping off the residents(voters). These guys lack business knowledge.

The Answer is no. Where is the forensic audit they promised? There depending on the Blue Island VOTERS short term memory. What happened to all the Good Intentions?
