Town of Meridian

The City of Meridian has been led by Mayor Tammy de Weerd for 15 years, but she has decided against running for a fifth term. This leaves voters there with five candidates to replace the longtime mayor. But who is favored to win, and can they live up to de Weerd’s legacy? BoiseDev reporter Don Day breaks down the race for Meridian's top job.

The future of Boise’s main library remains up in the air. After citizen petitions asking for a vote on whether to vote for or against the librarycity council meetings on a possible second voter question, and a lot of confusion, the Boise City Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed November special election on the project. So what is the city proposing? Can anyone testify at the public hearing? And what happens next? Idaho Matters asks Don Day of those questions.


A recent report from the Brookings Institute found that Boise's growth prosperity may be evening out. We look at the numbers and talk with BoiseDev reporter Don Day about the economic future of the City of Trees.
