Boise City Council and bond election

October 8, 2013 

Three of the Boise City Council's six seats are up for election this fall, and all three of those incumbents are seeking re-election. Because each council seat represents all of Boise, voters cast ballots in all races for open seats.

Boise residents also will vote on two bond proposals. The first is a $17.2 million bond to build a new fire training facility and to replace four older fire stations. The second is a $15.7 million bond, of which $5.5 million would go toward enhancing existing parks and building news ones, and $10 million would go toward the acquisition of open space in the Boise Foothills as well as urban areas.
