It's Boise, it's Boise, it's Boise

October 18, 2022

Just watched Steve Fioravanti YouTube video. One of his concerns as commissioner is the Plexiglas? Wonder what his thoughts are on the wall to wall Bonners Ferry City Hall "bomb blast glass” are. Or the folks who still wear masks? Will he demand they remove them? Mock them? Then there is the ARPA money.

Recently, commissioners used our federal tax dollars to purchase items for a privately owned and operated company, contracted by the county to provide ambulance service.

Of course, we could have held another election ($$) and raised the levy rate from .04 to .06 and make local property owners pay. Is this the course the new commissioners would prefer?

Lastly, the county budget. It’s Boise. It’s Boise. It’s Boise. It’s Boise who makes the laws the county must follow. County employees have tirelessly made do to make ends meet.

It’s Boise who makes the tax rules the assessor must follow. It’s Boise who can come in and demand that property valuations be reexamined. It’s Boise who refuses to fund schools … oh wait, Boise just used federal (our) monies to placate “Idahoans.

It’s Boise who will not tackle property tax inequities. After all why kill the Golden Goose? It’s Boise, it’s Boise, it’s Boise … and it’s the people you send to Boise.
