We live in Meridian, and no our street hasn't been plowed, I didn't expect it to be. I know that most of the years there has never been this amount of snow. We've lived at this address 19 years and I've lived in the Boise area since 1978. Maybe once or twice have I experience amounts of snow like this year. Sure ACHD couple purchase equipment to try to handle side streets, but that would be a huge increase in TAXES and/or your vehicle registration.
Then people would complain about not being able to park on the street, or having their driveway entrance plowed full when the blow passes by. So chose what you want bu t don't complain about the consequences.
I choose to live with what we have, and don't want an increase in my TAXES and/or your vehicle registration.
People need to buy a shovel and stop complaining about how their street has not been plowed. ACHD is doing all it can.
For Idaho Democrat politicians to be elected and succeed they need to couple up with Idaho voters and uncouple from the national party.
It's too late. They ruined it. The developers will never be satisfied and will build, build, build. The country and city governments will keep rubber stamping everything that comes down the pike, and will make phony "plans" that they then disregard. They will continue to make "best place to live" lists until it is no place to live at all. People will continue to move here, and tell all the people they know "how great it is" and half of them will move here too. People will, without any irony whatsoever, complain about how "this place was better when I moved here in 99," and women will continue to put county cow motifs in their suburbian kichens that sit in houses built on former farms. They will continue to bring people here, and then wonder why there's more crime, taxes are higher, roads and schools are crowded, and "there's just no room anymore." Then all these same people will move on and do the same thing yet again- somewhere else.
Most Expensive Fare In Doobie Kabb ?
Considering our enforce state Constitution, Guthrie shouldn't even remain in our legislature for his "immoral behavior," not to mention that he has been a "failure" for years. In fact, I wrote our beloved Attorney General about the Constitution requirement and Guthrie's known behavior. The AG has yet to respond at all....
And, I must frankly admit, Nye is simply a pompous, arrogant fool.
Consider the basis of state governance failures: Our "simple majority voting concept" has over the years simply allowed an inept collection of an utter ship-of-foolish-hollow men and women. Our citizenry remains basically uninformed and quietly enslaved by blatantly embarrassing governance.
We sorely need a "Mr. Trump" within our state.
Well the 80/20 rule still applies to alcohol consumption. More than one study has come up with the fact that 80% of alcohol is consumed by 20% of consumers. So that may have something to do with our collective hangovers. Maybe one, two or four less drinks per session might help. But that is pretty hard to manage when drinking, and drinking more is so heavily promoted as socially acceptable.
Conference fees often include cost of banquets and luncheons allowing public employees to exceed cost per meal limits or god forbid, getting reimbursed on expense vouchers for meals covered in conference fees. Scrutiny of conference promotional literature is required to avoid these abuses.
I have had experience with things you talk about in this writing. First, I have a third of an acre of property that is surrounded by trees and bushes making it near invisible in the summer. I have had many stay in my yard for periods of time while getting back on their feet. I also know people who have tried things and been ticketed and sent away by draconian city ordinances. There needs to be a major change not just the mayor's lip service.
"... each [Boise City Council member] also submitted reports for $180 in mileage reimbursement, indicating all six drove the 314 miles to Sun Valley in separate vehicles."
Carpooling is for the Little People!
A truly unremarkable building. I can't help but wonder whose pockets are being lined, given the unending downtown development. I lived in the Boise area from December, 2012, to January, 2016, and the detours and construction were a constant headache. I avoided the area whenever possible.
The Ketchum City Council is simply practicing politically correct ultra green obstruction.
If not many people stay in these rooms that would be devastating for the local economy,but at least the homeless problem would be solved.
The city of Boise/Planning and Zoning appears to be miopically challenged. Parking in downtown especially Trader Joe's and parking garages is ridicuoulously limited and almost guarantees dings in car doors and fenders. Either build high-rise parking facilities for each addition or scrap the number of businesses. Personally moving my business as a consumer to the Bench and Meridian areas to avoid the car damage and parking issues.
As I recollect: in the 70's, there was a zoning rule in place that limited development to one home per 20acres of tillable land. The thinking at the time was to protect land in large enough parcels to be attractive to farmers. As the valleys' demographics changed and politics became more urbanized with folks from non-agricultural backgrounds the perceived value of farms and open space diminished. The urban outlook of that day sought a more urbane Boise and did not want to be perceived as "Podunk"or "back woods". Unfortunately the county commission changed as well, becoming overwhelmingly pro-development. At least there is a new discussion starting to push back, I hope. I agree with the previous statement that if we want to save some of what's left it had better happen quickly.
He better not ever be seen in Texas again or they will hand out the punishment the courts should have. This type of individual should not be walking the streets freely. He left Keller, Tx because of behavioral problems and getting in trouble but yet the courts think probation can rehabilitate him. Good luck with that
How can you write an article about a rapist that has received an egregiously inadequate sentence and not include even a single detail of the victims account or legal prosecution? This article is despicable. You should be ashamed of yourself for being complicit to an atrocious and racially charged assault on a mentally disabled child.
I'd like to add that Boise weekly has also been impeded almost impossible at one point to get to you
The ugly disgusting truth is that nobody that is on this board that approves any of these products give a rat's butt about anybody or anything having to commute or move about in downtown Boise the first order of business is always to have safe passage for your pedestrians. None of us and let me repeat none of us that are regular civilians who live in this city care about these private projects that have usurped our sidewalks and I wrote it seems to me somebody better get on the stick because we are organizing a freaking protest we are sick of it
By far the ugliest thing I have ever seen. What the are they thinking or better yet not thinking. The truth that come here have come here in the past and always for the one thing they are taking away that is the beautifulness the smallness loveliness of our city that Boise has Let to ruin
