How Idaho Lawmakers Could Change The Way Boise Elects Council Members
The debate over how cities should elect their city councils in Idaho is expected to intensify in the coming days at the state legislature.
House Bill 413 would require cities with official populations over 100,000 to elect its city council members by district. Currently, Boise is the only city that fits into that category.
Simply put, this bill would upend Boise’s current City Council, which is made up entirely by at-large elected officials.
Boise State Public Radio’s George Prentice spoke with George Moses, a Boise resident and former member of the Idaho Redistrict Commission about this measure.
