Question: A P&Z Conflict Of Interest Or Not?

Issue: Souza accused of violating conflict of interest laws: Cd’A man says planning commissioner should not have participated in meeting/Marc Stewart, Coeur d’Alene Press

More Info (from Press): “A Coeur d’Alene man is hopping mad at a city planning commissioner who bounced his business off the map. Jay Weedon asked the city to charge Mary Souza with violating conflict of interest laws when she rejected his proposed children’s birthday party business. That business, which utilizes inflatable bouncy houses, would have been located behind the Charter Academy and across the street from Souza’s corporate event production company. ‘She should have dismissed herself from the meeting,’ Weedon said Friday.’”

Question: Did Mary have a conflict of interest? (Bonus Question: Is there anything such thing as a conflict of interest in Coeur d’Alene?)
