Apparently, not everyone got the memo. In a letter sent to area banks, savings & loans, brokers, realtors, the SBA, builders and title companies, Kuna Mayor Greg Nelson informed them that the rumors are not true and that the LID lawsuit has been settled.
He wrote, “As we begin 2014, the city of Kuna is pleased to inform you that the litigation involving the formation of the Local Improvement District – LID used to construct the state of the art sewage treatment facility in Kuna has been settled. Lands secured by the LID assessments have been released, land values have returned to their fair market values and building activity is increasing each month. The new sewer plant is fully operational and has a large unused capacity that will easily handle considerable growth in Kuna.”
“There still seems to be persistent rumors surrounding the LID assessment that Kuna lands still have the LID assessment. This simply is not true. The lawsuit is settled.”
“Kuna’s population now stands at 16,186 and the city is working hard to attract new businesses and provide better opportunities for our kids. Kuna is the youngest city in Idaho having more children per capita than any other city in our state. Almost 40 percent of our population is under 19, which keeps us in tune to the hopes and wishes of the younger generation. Kuna is working hard to respond to those needs.”
“Kuna is a great place to live and only minutes from the major employment centers in southwest Idaho. Come out and visit, you will find a growing, caring and affordable community that is in the process of celebrating our 150th anniversary. We look forward to seeing you.”
