Mayor Hotline Jan. 29 to Feb. 4

Nancy Sheets
Boise, ID 83704
ISSUE: She is partially disabled and tried to walk her leashed dogs in the park with a cane. An enforcement officer gave her a ticket for dogs at large even though they were at her heels and still on their leash. She is on a fixed income and would like the ticket waived.

Mike Allen
S. Holden Ave.
Boise, ID
He was issued a citation for not having a leash on his dog in the parking lot even though he was just returning from the Hulls Gulch off-leash area. He felt like this was entrapment. He paid the ticket but will no longer volunteer to do trail work at Hulls Gulch.
Finance & Admin.

ISSUE: Complaint 1 – Noisy vehicle (Nevada plates) with illegal exhaust system is in the neighborhood around Boise High between 6:00 & 6:30 a.m., waking everyone up.
Complaint 2 – Graffiti on the curb at the NE corner of 10th and Franklin. He thinks calling the Mayor’s Hotline instead of the Graffiti Hotline will get graffiti removed more quickly.

Alan B. VanSickle
W. Landmark Ct.
Boise, ID
ISSUE: His mother, Louise VanSickle, had a Durable Power of Attorney prepared. It appoints him, in the absence of her ability, to make decisions on her health. The State Dept. of Health & Welfare has no right to infringe on his rights to make health care decisions for his mother. He wants the police to quit coming to their home or the hospital and harassing him.

    I’ve seen that tag @ 10th & Franklin, and it’s been there for quite some time. It’s strategically placed for maximum frontage to the General Public and Student Body that drive and walk through that intersection in droves everyday.

    This in addition to the recent explosion of tagging on the backs of street signs, the High School Tennis Courts (fixing the court light(s) would help) and on many a vertical surface in the alleys closest to the High School.

    It’s tolerance on and around the Boise High Campus makes a mockery of the City’s anti-graffiti campaign, and the Mayor’s Hotline.

  2. This week, sounds like too many cops are assigned to leash-law and hasslin’-sick-people duty, and not enough cops assigned to noisy car and graffiti duty.

    EDITOR NOTE–Bikeboy, there are some hints in thos posts that make it appear the tickets are coming from the METER MAIDS AND BUTLERS or something similar. Anyone know for sure?

  3. BB, Their not cops… just over-zelous citizens where knee-high leather boots for a day. Get thee to a judge and toss out on he said she said. That said, the former trail volunteer was likely very knowledgable and supportive of the rule he broke. 🙂

    Did I tell of the nitwit that tried to write me for the dog that was not mine? Dog gone, only proof was empty cage in car… must be my dog off leash right? Why don’t they send these dolts after the paintsprayers??

  4. The Graffiti is the biggest quality of life problem the city has now. Taking this seriously is past due.

  5. It’s not Graffiti !?!? It’s culture art. A bunch of the northend lefties seem to like it. Probably their kids doing it.

    The increase in Graffiti in Boise is DIRECTLY proportional to the increase of a particular demographic in Boise.

    A non politically correct notion perhaps; but, entirely accurate.

    I won’t name them; but, I am personally acquainted with a Boise attorney – comfortably ensconced on the Left – who likes it.

    So much so he does absolutely nothing to discourage the tagging and posting on his own residential street.

    You asked.

    Those “kids” are more likely Trustafarians from the Foothills and Boise’s assorted White-Bread Gated Communities.
