Thanks for Making City Officials' Day at the Capitol a Success!

Posted By GayDawn Oyler, Thursday, January 31, 2019

Over 170 city officials joined nearly all 105 members of the Idaho Legislature for City Officials’ Day at the Capitol last week.

Thanks to all the city officials who were in attendance. 

The day kicked off with a Legislative Briefing in the Lincoln Auditorium at the Idaho Capitol.  City officials heard about the priorities of majority and minority leadership with a panel including Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill, Senate Minority Leader Michelle Stennett, Speaker of the House Scott Bedke, and House Minority Leader Mat Erpelding. 

There were also informative discussions about legislation on liquor-by-the-drink licensing, campaign finance, partisan city elections, and reauthorizing the surplus eliminator for transportation funding.

The morning session concluded with a panel of representatives of local government associations, including AIC Executive Director Jess Harrison, Idaho Association of School Boards Executive Director Karen Echeverria, and Idaho Association of Counties Executive Director Seth Grigg.

City officials then escorted their legislators to lunch at the Boise Centre East.  After lunch, the AIC Drug Task Force had a panel discussion of substance abuse issues in Idaho including Task Force Chair Mayor Tammy de Weerd of Meridian, Meridian Chief of Police Jeff Lavey, Bill Larsen of the Treasure Valley Partnership, Idaho Falls Chief of Police Bryce Johnson, and Marianne King of the Idaho Office of Drug Policy.
