Caldwell Urban Renewal Board May Have Stepped Outside of Their Legal Authority

Caldwell East Urban Renewal Agency has just put together Resolution 2009-3 telling one and all their actions with respect to financing TVCC are legal and within their authority to fund.

There is a very hasty movement by Urban Renewal and the City of Caldwell toward making all the financial commitments they can to TVCC prior to the November election. Relax, you are not going to get to vote on any of this anyway. The public rinse cycle is not getting any respect from the Urban Renewal Board, Mayor Nancolas or the Caldwell City Council.

The following is the meat and potatoes out of CEURA Resolution 2009-3:

"Section 1. That the proposed clarification of the Plan, submitted at this meeting is hereby approved and recommended for adoption and approval by the Caldwell City Council, after notice and hearing. A notice of such hearing shall be published in the IDAHO PRESS-TRIBUNE at least 30 days prior to such hearing in the City Council.

Section 2. That any motion, resolution or provision thereof. which is inconsistent with this Resolution, is hereby repealed."

Clearly, they have overstepped their legal limits and have made a move to rectify the situation before some irate taxpayer picks up the scent and takes some form of legal action to make these folks accountable to the taxpayers.

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.
