Council Meeting Notes
The Kuna City Council had its most divisive vote in recent months when Mayor Nelson broke a tie after deliberation and a vote regarding the Silver Trail Preliminary Plat. At question was whether or not to accept the plat that requested two story homes being built along 10 Mile Road. A previous developer had agreed to only build single story homes upon adoption of a previous planned development due to neighbor requests. These plans were from a new developer. It was approved by Mayor Nelson, Councilman Stear and Councilwoman Buban-Vonder Haar to approve the plans with two story homes.
There was some confusion regarding the notice that went to residents saying it was a public hearing but further in to the letter saying that public comment was, in fact, closed. Some residents showed up to comment
but no comments were requested from council.
The city council also approved some resolutions cleaning up some accounting with several companies who had transferred ownership and a request to clean up some old plats regarding an alley that cut through the current 4th Street Gym. An ordinance was passed correcting the mistakenly zoned addition to the city limits.
