The Boise City Council vs Ada County Highway District feud drew a strong rebuke from the IDAHO STATESMAN editorial board Saturday over the widening of Ustick Road.
The gist of the editorial was “play nice,” but the GUARDIAN got to thinking: Other than the Chamber of Commerce, what group is really happy with the city council?
Councilor Vern Bisterfeldt went to Ada County in an attempt to mend the fence between the rest of the council and the commishes, but the commishes didn’t want to talk in public and got crossways of the attorney general and the Idaho open meeting law.
Then there are unhappy North Enders, Bench-Depot neighbors, Ten Commandment folks, Anti-Annexation people, Infill Foes, Historic Preservationists who ALL would have a hard time giving passing grades to the councilors.
Are all these groups and individuals out of step with the wise and considerate drumbeats of the city council? Maybe the November 8 election will give us some answers.
