You haven’t heard much from me on here lately, mostly because I have been busy. For example, this week, in addition to all of the usual meetings, paperwork, e-mail messages, and phone calls, I had the pleasure of meeting with Randy Howell, the Boise Fire Department’s new division chief over Emergency Medical Services. The same day, I sat in on a meeting of the Ada County Fire Chief’s Association. The chiefs are a lively group and the discussion was both entertaining AND informative.
Tuesday evening, the Fair Board met. The agenda that was covered ranged from fair finances to website designers. Today, my colleagues and I had the pleasure of attending a Boise Metro Chamber luncheon at which Idaho’s U.S. Senator Jim Risch was the speaker. Whether you agree with Jim or not, he is an intelligent, well-informed and engaging speaker.
I’m now working on a new piece to post on my blog in which I am trying to address all of the misinformation being spread about Les Bois Park, horse racing, and the RFP (Request for Proposals) process.
One of the highlights of last week was attending a meeting of the Weed, Pest and Mosquito Abatement Advisory Board. The department is utilizing advanced computer technology to track all of their critter-fighting efforts.
The County has a number of citizen advisory committees. If you have an opinion and want to get involved, serving on one of these committees is a great way to go about it. When we have advisory committee openings, they are posted at www.adaweb.net. My colleagues and I value citizen involvement and input. Please feel free to call me at 287-7001 (direct dial office) or 362-0843 (home) or send e-mail to email@example.com .
