Thousands of tax dollars later, Team Dave’s desire named street car has resurfaced.
This time around instead of hiring a PR outfit to creat public support for Mayor Dave Bieter’s dream of a “downtown circulator,”
City officials are aiming for a Jan. 29 meeting to seek “input” on what type of circulator in the downtown area is desired… not presuming NO STREET CAR is desired, based on past surveys.
The GUARDIAN can only echo years and years of reports, studies, surveys, and studies. GIVE US A DAMN BUS SYSTEM and quit wasting our money! People wanting a streetcar make as much sense as those who hailed the runaway bus driver as a hero–before coppers filed charges against him for whacking trees and nearly wiping out the Idaho Power building.
Hint: the city is unlikely to get streetcar permission from ACHD if they can’t get the hockey pucks installed to monitor parking meeters.
