In Aspen, Colorado, the city provides office space to the county, but only on the strict condition that microwaving fish sticks must be strictly prohibited. After considerable debate and a public hearing, the county commissioners agreed that fish sticks should never be microwaved. So their intergovernmental office space agreement not only specifies office hours and building codes – but also bans fish sticks! The smell of certain foods in the breakroom is a common complaint of office workers everywhere. But most people look through the Lens of Liberty before trying to make their personal tastes a matter of law. Do we really need contracts to dictate what workers can and cannot eat? Surely elected city and county officials have more important business to worry about than what’s for lunch.
