“Mix of support and concern” at first BieterBond open house

Somewhere between 20 and 30 visitors attended the city of Boise’s open house Monday on Mayor David Bieter’s proposal to borrow $34 million to invest in parks, open space and the fire and police departments, spokesman Adam Park said.

Most of the people who attended took printed comment forms with them, saying they’d fill them out and submit them later.

In talking with police, fire, parks and other city officials Monday, visitors showed a “mix of support and concern,” Park said.

“More people were probably excited than not,” he said.

Park said the city expects/hopes more people will show up at open houses Wednesday and Thursday. Here’s the details for those events:

• 4 p.m. Wednesday, Grace Jordan Community Center, 6411 W. Fairfield Ave.

• 4 p.m. Thursday, City Hall, council chambers, third floor, 150 N. Capitol Blvd.
