Gov. Butch Otter will bring his monthly "Capital for a Day" road show to Arco in Butte County on Tuesday, July 28. The traveling program brings state officials to communities across Idaho, giving local residents a chance to engage the governor and his agency heads on issues of government and public policy.
The Arco visit is governor’s 83rd such trip and his second to Arco, which hosted a visit in 2008. The city lays claim to being the first in the world to be powered by nuclear energy and observes the 60th anniversary of that milestone this month.
The Arco visit will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the BIC Center, 159 S. Idaho Street. Scheduled to join the governor are Lt. Governor Brad Little, Parks Director David Langhorst, Water Resources Director Gary Spackman, Energy Resources Director John Chatburn and Environmental Quality Director John Tippets. Representatives from the Board of Education and departments of Transportation, Commerce and Health and Welfare will also be on hand.
