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


The City of Caldwell is excited to announce the addition of the new Communications Specialist to our team! Chelsea Wilson brings experience from the political arena that includes policy research and analysis, lobbying, campaign work, and social media management. As the City of Caldwell continues to grow and expand its opportunities for new and current residents, its need for keeping residents well informed has become increasingly urgent. Chelsea will work directly with Mayor Nancolas, City Council members, press, and other city officials to ensure that information pertaining to the public is accurate and easily accessible. She will also work with the state legislature to ensure Caldwell’s unique needs are addressed.


The City of Idaho Falls acting Parks and Recreation Director P.J. Holm has become the next permanent director of the department. "We have amazing parks and recreational offerings in this city, and to be selected from such a prestigious group of candidates to lead this department is a real honor," said Holm.  "I'm excited to work with the Mayor and Council and the wonderful staff we have to continue to build on our established tradition of excellence in this great city." Holm joined the city in October 2013 as a recreation superintendent and promoted to assistant director in January 2019.  The UI graduate previously worked for the YMCA as a program director.


Holm would succeed former Director Greg Weitzel, who stepped down to lead the Las Vegas, Nevada Parks and Recreation Department June 3.


The City of Pocatello saw two of their employees recognized for different awards. Officer Lance Cartwright will also be recognized for receiving the Idaho Victims Witness Association’s Service Award. Sergeant Scott Matson will be recognized for earning his Supervisor Certificate.

Carscallen was nominated for this national award by peers in the Moscow EMS community. Mayor Bill Lambert says of the award, “We are tremendously proud of Debby, who truly deserves this recognition. She is an integral part of the City’s and the Moscow Volunteer Fire Department’s team, and a shining example of the community of Moscow!”
