Hey. Who wants to be on the City Council?

Please see the attached press release inviting applications for the City Council seat vacancy resulting from Council Member Vern Bisterfeldt’s election to the Ada County Commission.  Please feel free to forward the information to any interested citizens.


Neighborhood Survey

Attached is a Neighborhood Survey.   Boise Police surveyed neighborhoods a few years ago, and want to determine any changes and/or improvements in neighborhoods and our services.    Please take time to forward it to your neighbors so as many as possible can be surveyed.   Please ask your neighbors to complete the survey and email or mail them to me.    If neighbors want to give their completed surveys to you, I’ll pick them up.   The due date  is Tuesday, November 2nd (2 weeks from tomorrow).     Once we receive and compile them, we’ll share the results with you.    If you have any questions, please let me know.   Thank you!
