Yesterday, Boise County Board of County Commissioners committed $500,000.00 of Boise County Funds to pay down the Alamar Debt which included paying off one of the registered warrants plus interest. I have attached Resolution 2012-26 showing the details.
Boise County’s application to the Idaho Bond Bank was submitted in May and we are waiting to hear back. There were a record number of participants (11) and a record number of outstanding obligations (21) in a record-sized bond issuance ($80M) at historic low interest rates. The IBBA Board has chosen to allow the Boise County’s Limited Tax refinancing application and Twin Falls new money Wastewater project application to move forward, while delaying the remaining refinancing applications until a refinancing policy can be drafted and decided upon. The good news is that the Bond Bank is moving forward with the County’s application and will likely bring it up for approval soon.
Thanks again to the Boise County voters who made this possible!
I also want to thank all of those involved with the fires in Clear Creek last week. I am so thankful for the dedicated and skilled personnel who responded quickly and effectively. I cannot thank them all enough for the valuable service provided Boise County.
In case you did not hear, Representative Ken Roberts has resigned to accept a position on the Idaho State Tax Commission. Governor Otter will be appointing his replacement and since Roberts was slated to be on the November ballot for re-election to the House from a realigned District 8 – including Boise, Valley, Custer, Lemhi, and Gem counties – a newly formed Republican legislative district committee will be meeting Saturday in Lowman and selecting his ballot replacement.
Prosecuting Attorney RJ Twilegar has also submitted his resignation as Boise County Prosecuting Attorney effective August 6, 2012. Boise County Commissioners anticipate receiving names from the Boise County Democratic Central Committee to appoint a replacement.
I am always ready and willing to hear from any of you on any matters of concern. Please contact me at 208 462-3439 or email@example.com.
