It’s time for county to be reasonable in road dispute

Print Article

Regardless of all the disputable facts in the Shadow Valley Lane debacle, Bonner County commissioners must be held accountable for how they spend tax dollars.

This “lane” has been in suit for almost two-and-a-half years. The Deens and Walkers pursued and promoted one day of mediation over a year ago which the county refused to attend. A second court-ordered mediation happened over six months ago throughout the whole of which the county refused to entertain a single option except that the Deens’ home be removed (i.e.destroyed).

The county has hired two attorneys in addition to their own in-house man, a dozen property owners have been without legal access for over two years, and inspite of all attempts by the Deens and Walkers, including a willingness to deed private land and settle out of court, the county refuses to be reasonable.

Bonner County commissioners: Enough is enough.

If you don’t like the government, don’t back incumbents

October 18, 2018 at 5:00 am | Bonner County Daily Bee I will vote next month. However, I don’t expect change. Far too many who can vote, will not and those that can and do vote will — mostly ­ select the lesser of two evils. Most will vote for the “in...
