The land deal that was to include a three way swap to get the Boise PD a shooting range in the Foothills and a group of docs the site for a private hospital has been put on hold until at Least October 23.
We got this message from the Team Dave press office:
“At its September 30 meeting, the Council will act on an amended resolution on the land exchange which will extend the closing date to on or before October 23, 2008.”
We have no idea where this puts things since the council has already approved the transaction, but if they hold a public hearing and give any interested party a shot at the purchase, we would have no objection. All of their dealing on this deal has been conducted out of the public eye with a single “buyer” who doesn’t even own the land they are offering to trade.
