They’re on their way

The legislative interim committee on property tax relief is coming to a location near you – for 12 public hearings around the state in the next two months. First stop will be Sandpoint on July 27 at 1 p.m., followed by Coeur d’Alene the same day at 7 p.m. On July 28, the panel will move to Moscow at 1 and Lewiston at 7. That’ll be followed by Hailey and Twin Falls on Aug. 10, Pocatello and Rexburg on Aug. 11, McCall and Emmett on Aug. 24, and Boise and Nampa/Caldwell on Aug. 25.

Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, the panel’s co-chair, said the hearings will begin with some basic information about how Idaho’s property tax system works, but will mostly be devoted to hearing from the public, “to ask the public what their concerns are and if they’ve got suggestions on how things can change.”
