Pioneer Irrgation Election /Lawsuit May Get People to Vote Water Costs to Increase 65%

Pioneer Irrigation via their attorney Scott Campbell is girding for a massive lawsuit with the city of Caldwell. One of the board members is up for election this year but the deck is stacked against the average citizen. One man, one vote is not the way it works at PID. One acre equals one vote at PID and may be a questionable legal practice based on prior law in Idaho.

The pending lawsuit is something you may not have paid attention to but it will be costly if it is allowed to move forward and Mr. Scott Campbell is not brought into control by his board and patrons. He has cost ACHD and Settler's Irrigation District $2.5 million so far in a similar lawsuit in Ada County.

A friend of THE GUARDIAN got her new water assessment and it went from $5,000 to $16,000 for this next year. Most folks will likely see a 65% increase in their assessments as well. If you live in Caldwell you get to pay for the lawsuit twice, once for the city of Caldwell to defend this and once to PID as the plaintiff in this deal.

If you are concerned about this needless lawsuit you need to get yourself out to Pioneer Irrigation District and vote you land/acreage and kick out the incumbent in the precinct up for election.

You have to get yourself out to Pioneer Irrigation Offices on Lake Avenue between the boulevard and Ustick Road on November 4th, you can't vote at your regular polling place.POLLING HOURS ARE 1:00PM to 7:00pm.

A public discourse on the issues of the day makes the world a better place.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
