Bryce Johnson has been hired as the new Chief of Police for the City of Idaho Falls. He was sworn in at the City Council Meeting on August 24. Chief Johnson served for eight years in the United States Naval Reserve as an intelligence analyst, 21 years with the Salt Lake City Police Department, and four years as Chief of Police for the City of Juneau, Alaska.


On August 24 the Idaho Falls City Council approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which included a $750,000 donation from William J. Maeck, with matched funding by the City, for renovations of the Idaho Falls Civic Auditorium.


Walt Appell, Public Works Director, and Joan Appell, GIS Analyst, both retired on August 18 from the City of Jerome. Walt worked for the City for 27 years, the last ten as Public Works Director, and Jone worked for the City for 16 years. Walt and Joan will be retiring to their cabin in the mountains.


Meridian Mayor Tammy de Weerd handed out free “sackpacks” (a drawstring backpack) to Meridian area families and children, especially those K-3rd grade, who were in need of a sackpack for school.  This was done in conjunction with the 2017 National Backpack Program, a partnership between the National Foundation for Women Legislators and the Office Depot Foundation, where 150 sackpacks were provided to be distributed to the community.
