Commissioners Consider LID Projects - Again

Apparently, the debate over the East Side Highway District paying for overlays wthrough local improvement districts is still open. The only thing that's known now is that the projects in Coeur d'Alene and Harrison will definitely happen, whether they're paid for through LIDs or not. The concern is, if the almost $4 million in projects isn't funded through LIDs, where will it come from? According to Highway District commissioners, through layoffs and maintenance cutbacks.

Here's the whole story from the Coeur d'Alene Press.
