Check out noteworthy things being done and honors received by people in Idaho cities around the state.


Boise Mayor David Bieter was presented with the 2019 Award of Legal Merit by the University of Idaho College of Law on Friday evening at a ceremony in Moscow.

“Mayor Bieter’s contributions to the public welfare of Boise and the state are too numerous to name,” said Jerrold Long, dean of the College of Law, in the college’s press release about the award. “He represents the best attributes of a lawyer, public servant, and alum of the law school. Our faculty is honored to recognize him with the Award of Legal Merit.”


City of Blackfoot Golf Professional, Mike Dayley, retires after 32 years of dedicated service to the City of Blackfoot and golfers throughout the Snake River Valley.  Mike, who began his career as an Assistant Professional at the Riverside Golf Club in Pocatello and later became the Head PGA Professional at the Copper Golf Club in Salt Lake City, moved back to Blackfoot in 1988 to become the Head PGA Professional at the Blackfoot Golf Club. Since that time, golfers throughout the region have been able to learn from Mike's expertise and professionalism, while he led the Golf Course in becoming one of the premier locations in the Snake River Valley.


A team of Idaho City Clerks were recently invited to present at the IIMC Conference in Birmingham, Alabama.   The topic was “Unique Municipal Projects”.   It was a well-attended workshop with lots of discussion and questions.

Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling announced today the appointment of Clay Long as the City of Nampa’s new Chief of Staff.


Mayor Brian Blad selected Richard Bigelow for the post of the City of Pocatello’s Building Official. Bigelow comes to the Gate City from Lewiston, Idaho where he currently serves as the Building Official for Nez Perce County. Previously, he had served as a Building Inspector for the City of Lewiston and Gooding County, Idaho.


“I’m looking forward to working with the Mayor and Council on achieving their goals when it comes to building in Pocatello,” said Bigelow. “I’m also excited about helping the residents of Pocatello reach their building and remodeling desires.”


At the Pocatello City Council Meeting, Councilmembers voted to confirm Mayor Brian Blad’s appointment of current PPD Major and Deputy Chief Roger Schei to the job.


“I am proud to be able to serve our community and lead the best men and women that law enforcement has to offer,” said Chief Schei. “The mission of the Pocatello Police Department is ‘community commitment’ and we’ll accomplish that mission by being approachable, by having a strong presence in the community, and maintaining a stance that crimes committed in our community are not acceptable.”
