We don’t know the players, but here is a potential candidate for public office in the form of a Boise City tree trimmer named Steve Markel. We doubt he cleared his comments with the mayor’s office, but Team Dave could sure use his talents in the P.R. department–not just as a tree trimmer.
ACHD and Boise Parks Forestry Dept. crews joined forces last week to clear trees from the Capitol Blvd. bridge in preparation for a major bridge painting project to celebrate the 150 birthday this summer. Here’s what Markel had to say to ACHD:
“I just wanted to say thank you for all the cooperation and assistance received to complete the Capitol Blvd Bridge tree pruning and removals. For a project that could have taken several days to be completed and was completed in one day, it was outstanding example of interagency cooperation with ACHD and Boise City Parks and Rec. Community Forestry. Thanks to Pierson Dewit,PE ACHD Design Supervisor and Rich Shaw ACHD Vegetation Crew Chief and his crew for taking care of all of the traffic control measures and assisting with pruning and removal of trees adjacent to the Capitol Blvd. Bridge.”
