Eye On Boise

Hundreds have their say on transportation

As of right now, 230 people have participated so far in the day of meetings in Caldwell that’s kicking off a round of such gatherings around the state on Idaho’s transportation funding shortfall. In the first of three hour-long information and public comment sessions running from 4-7 p.m., “They had just about every seat filled, and there were people standing in back,” said Jon Hanian, Gov. Butch Otter’s press secretary. The governor, who welcomed the group at 4, was “definitely pleased by the turnout,” Hanian said. “We definitely got a lot of input.” The transportation meetings move to Coeur d’Alene on Wednesday and Lewiston on Thursday, to be followed by several more southern Idaho sessions in the coming weeks.
