Declaring it’s time to “think outside the box and operate a free market economy,” Idaho Legislators voted Wednesday to offer free Uber Car rides to Boise City Councilors. The catch was the rides were good only to Ada County Highway District meetings.
Councilors were expected to discuss the impending closure of Jefferson Street with the ACHD Commishes. When the issue of “migration of services” to Meridian arose, North Idaho Legislators said it was sad to have migrant laborers in the health community, but perhaps Meridian is the place for them.
St. Luke’s offered to create a transit “mini-mall” as an enticement to City Councilors if they would close Jefferson without consent of the ACHD commishes who said they would “meditate,” but not pray on the question.
In a home stretch, down to the wire bid, Ada County Commishes told Guv. Butch Otter they would like him to veto the anti-slot machine horseless racing repeal bill. Chairman Jim Tibbs told the Guv., “Just because there are no horses and the windows are full of cherries, melons, bars, and lemons, doesn’t mean some April Fool can’t pick a winner once a year.”
