Mayor Hotline April 23 to 29

Betsy Russell
Hillway Drive
Boise, ID 83702
ISSUE: Yard sale signs on Harrison Boulevard were taken down due to City Code that prohibits signs. She is concerned that there will be no other way for neighbors in the North End to alert each other to yard sales. She thinks it’s inconsistent that real estate signs, which are also temporary, are allowed.

Bill March
S Shortleaf Avenue
Boise, ID 83716
ISSUE: He saw a group of people collecting petition signatures next to the front door of the main Library. He would like to know the exact specifications for using the sidewalk in front of the Library for any type of political activity. It made the activity look sanctioned by the Library.

Tom Munz
Barbara Lane
Caldwell, ID 83607
ISSUE: He would like to know how the City of Boise can charge money for parking violations and parking meters outside the Capitol Building, especially to non-residents. He wanted to do something at the Statehouse but got a parking ticket.

Joe Barber
S Jolinda Avenue
Boise, ID 83709
ISSUE: Renters of a home in their neighborhood have taken poor care of the property. The back yard is a fire hazard in the dry seasons. Code enforcement has been there several times, but no results have been seen. The property value of neighborhood is decreasing; the neighbors would like to see their property taxes devalued if no action is taken by the city to clean up the house.

Jack Lavin
Roanoke Drive
Boise, ID 83712
ISSUE: Would like to know why the mayor is stirring the pot on the distribution of ACHD money. He feels the distribution is and has been equitable.
