Caldwell's State of the City ... Minus the Mayor

Posted By on Wed, Jan 29, 2014 at 9:47 AM

The State of the City in Caldwell is.... Wait a minute.... Where's the Mayor?

Everyone was in their place Jan. 28 for Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas' annual State of the City address Tuesday afternoon at the College of Idaho, but the mayor wasn't there.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Nancolas missed the State of the City because of an unexpected medical procedure.

"Trust me, I'd rather be there in person," Nancolas said via a prerecorded video that he taped that morning.

Instead, the State of the City was delivered by Caldwell City Council members Mike Pollard, Dennis Callsen, Rob Hopper, Terrence Biggers and Shannon Ozuna. But the Press-Tribune reports that Council President Jim Blacker was notably absent.

Council members pointed to economic development highlights and Caldwell's dropping crime rate—6,929 offenses per 100,000 people were reported in 2013, versus 8,586 per 100,000 in 2008.
