Kootenai commissioners to consider suspending impact fees


Gov. Butch Otter's executive order asking for an accounting of federal funds by state agencies is due to the Division of Financial Management by Sept. 2.

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.
