Our sister blog, the CALDWELL GUARDIAN, has done some grat work recently uncovering irregularities in public agencies. First it was the county DMV embezzlement scandal, now editor Paul Alldredge has found problems in the URBAN RENEWAL agency.
By simply publishing the minutes of their own meetings, Alldredge has shined the light of public scrutiny on a public agency that uses TAX MONEY to fund a private family membership in the local YMCA for Caldwell’s mayor. A member of the urban renewal board, Nancolas made a public display of virtue when he abstained from voting on the measure that used PUBLIC MONEY for his $880 recreational membership.
Urban renewal agencies are out of control statewide, but Caldwell has to be the poster child for abuse of the system. Note to Canyon prosecutor: You need to request an investigation/audit into the workings of the Caldwell Urban Renewal Agency. The Idaho State Controller will be happy to assist you on this one. It’s her job!
