A story in the daily paper Monday portrayed Kuna’s mayor-elect as a pro-business kind of guy when it comes to fees and regulations associated with new businesses and conciliatory toward neighboring city Meridian.
However, Mayor-elect Greg Nelson didn’t have much good to say about planning and Zoning Director Steven Hasson and that probably stems from a dispute over $36,000 in fees the city claims it is owed by the new mayor for water and sewer hook-up fees for the Creekside Lounge and Peregrine Steaks and Spirits Restaurant built in 2005/06 by Nelson.
Caldwell GUARDIAN editor Paul Alldredge did the leg work after reading the DAILY PAPER and found the alleged non-payment was discovered in a state DEQ financial audit of Kuna’s city sewer and water records.
Public records include a series of communications, including demand for payment, between Hasson and Nelson beginning in March.
