Kootenai commissioners to consider suspending impact fees


Tom Schultz, director of the Idaho Department of Lands, told a legislative interim committee that investments from the endowment lands produced a record return in fiscal year 2014.

Eighteen months and nearly $500,000 later, commissioners in Kootenai County will consider suspending the collection of impact fees, according to a story in the Coeur d’Alene Press.

The fees were approved in February 2011 and are assessed to commercial and residential builders to help fund a variety of services including fire and highway districts and emergency medical services.

But commissioners say the fees are a burden to collect and in some instances prevent development in the county.
