Commissioners Uphold Controversial LID Decision

Despite citizen protests, East Side Highway District commissioners voted unanimously yesterday to uphold approval of three local improvement districts, which will match federal dollars for overlays in Coeur d'Alene and Harrison.

Commissioners say they understand the concerns of the residents who would have to contribute to the LIDs, but don't want to lose out on one-time federal funding that would cover a large chunk of the project costs. The Commissioners may not have the last word however. Here's the latest from the Coeur d'Alene Press.
