More Info: The Kootenai County commissioners approved a professional services agreement for public relations firm Kestrel West Inc. The Boise firm will complete research and handle outreach and public education related to a construction project that would increase the number of courtrooms, office space and parking facilities on the county's downtown campus. Kestrel West will be paid $28,000 if it completes the scope of work laid out in the agreement. Both the work and pay are broken into two-month blocks. The county starts by paying Kestrel West a total of $4,000 for the first two months of research work, which is already underway.

Question: Do you think governmental entities should hire public relations companies?
