PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Steamboat Springs City Councilwoman Heather Sloop said a former council member sent her an intimidating email to keep her from speaking out against a housing proposal that he has a financial interest in.

Sloop said Tuesday that former Council President Walter Magill sent the email while he was still serving on council.

Magill is the civil engineer for the proposed 86-unit Urban Street on the Mountain Project, which Sloop voted to table back in October after she raised questions about road designs as well as other aspects of the project.

The day after the tabling motion, Magill, who had to recuse himself from the council deliberations due to his financial connection, sent Sloop an email accusing her of misrepresenting her civil engineer background while she was criticizing the Urban Street project.

Magill also said the proponents of the project were ready to confront Sloop about the alleged misrepresentation of her civil engineering credentials.

Magill specifically said Sloop needed to stop presenting herself as a civil engineer while on council when she was not licensed.
