We posted a story January 8 NO AVIMOR POOP FOR BOISE regarding City Council plans for a policy to preclude poop from the Avimor planned community on Highway 55 north of Eagle.
Seems State and County officials approved Avimor’s plans to truck their poop to the Boise sewer plant after it is treated on site. They had apparently left Boise officials out of the loop.
When City Councilors got wind of the plan (from the GUARDIAN), they raised a stink and passed an ordinance preventing proliferating poop from being placed at plants in Boise. Part of the motivation was to slow the planned communities, but Team Dave was still miffed about the County approval of Avimor in the first place against their wishes. While the Councilors were distancing themselves from Avimor, Boise staffers were working with and for the “enemy.”
Turns out there was potential for some “insider trading” in the unpleasant commodity. A couple of Boise Public Works dudes have a moonlight business operating private poop plants in proximity to Boise’s public plants–including Avimor and Hidden Springs.
