Moyie Springs is 100th ‘Capital’

Print Article

MOYIE SPRINGS — Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter has announced that the Boundary County community of Moyie Springs will host his 100th Capital for a Day on Friday, March 16.

Otter brings state government to Idahoans living outside Boise each month by making a different town in Idaho the state’s “Capital for a Day.” The meetings provide local residents an opportunity to have open discussions about government issues and public policy with Otter, members of his cabinet and other senior state officials.

The Capital for a Day on March 16 is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Moyie Springs City Hall, 3331 Roosevelt Road. The city of Moyie Springs will host a midday luncheon, open to the public, at the same location.

State officials joining Otter include First Lady Lori Otter, Lt. Gov. Brad Little, State Department of Agriculture Director Celia Gould, Department of Environmental Quality Director John Tippets, Department of Lands Director David Groeschl, Department of Fish and Game Director Virgil Moore, Fish and Game Commissioner Brad Corkill, and Public Utilities Commissioner Eric Anderson. The departments of Health and Welfare, Water Resources, Parks and Recreation, Transportation, the Idaho State Police and the Division of Veterans Services also will have senior representatives on hand to field questions.

“My first Capital for a Day as governor was January 2007 in Bonners Ferry. It’s fitting that Boundary County also should host my 100th Capital for a Day,” Otter said. “You can’t get much further away from Boise than Moyie Springs and still be in Idaho. But the kinds of issues facing this rural area are much the same as in communities throughout our state, from Mud Lake to Marsing and Pocatello to Porthill. My cabinet members and I look forward to hearing from the folks who know the area best about the issues that matter most to them.”
