We posted a brief notice last week about Boise City Councilor David Eberele moving from the North End to new digs in Garden City.
He confirmed the move in a front page story a few days later in the DAILY PAPER, saying he planned to remain on Boise’s urban renewal board–CCDC (Capital City Development Corp.).
We thank the good councilor for his service to the community, but frankly we have problems with people from outside our city serving on city boards and making decisions regarding the city. We checked the urban renewal statutes and there is nothing REQUIRING members to live within the confines of a district or the city (county) which serves as the “governing authority” of the district. Still, he was appointed by the mayor of Boise in his capacity as a Boise City Councilor. He told the Statesman it was time for change in his council seat and that philosophy probably is good advice for the CCDC board position as well.
The proper move would be to resign the CCDC post at the same time he vacates the city council seat.
We wish the Team Dave member well in his new Garden City residence where he can no doubt share his wit and wisdom with that local government.
