Governor Otter has scheduled a series of meetings throughout Idaho to solicit input from local elected officials, business leaders, and the public about alternatives to address the quarter-billion dollar revenue shortfall confronting Idaho's transportation system.
'Building Roads, Building Bridges, Building Consensus' will address the funding gap for infrastructure improvements throughout the state. Cities, counties, highway districts, and members of the public rely on the user fees to provide public safety, stimulate economic opportunity, ensure access to Idaho's share of federal transportation matching funds and maintain highways and bridges.
The meeting in our region will be July 16 at the Coeur d'Alene Best Western. It will included discussions with legislators, city and county officials, local business and industry representatives and the public. The conference begins at 9 a.m. and concludes with a public open house from 4-7 p.m.
