Nampa named best run city in America
NAMPA — When WalletHub compared the operating efficiency of 150 of the largest U.S. cities, Nampa was named 2017’s Best Run City in America. "Running a city is a tall order," WalletHub announced. "In addition to representing the residents they serve, local leaders must balance the public's diverse interests with the city's limited resources." WalletHub decided to measure the effectiveness of local leadership by determining a city's operating efficiency or how well city officials manage and spend public funds. WalletHub constructed a Quality of Services score, comprising 33 key performance indicators grouped into six service categories to measure against the city’s per-capita budget.
The city of Nampa ranked first in total budget per-capita among the 150 cities in its study. Nampa ranked 16th in financial stability, 41st in infrastructure and pollution, 44th in safety and economy and 65th in health.
Under Mayor Bob Henry's leadership, with support from the City Council during the past three years, the city’s levy rate is on track to drop by 20 percent by next year. The city begins its budgeting process Tuesday morning with workshops to consider departmental requests.
The proposed 2018 budget focuses on the city's capital needs.
"It's been a four-year process to address long-deferred maintenance projects, but we’re making good progress," Henry said in a press release.

Nampa says 'no' to fire district annexation
The Nampa City Council voted 5-1 to disband the ad hoc committee that has been discussing for months the merits and drawbacks of allowing the Nampa Fire Protection District to annex the city of Nampa, which would mean the currently-city-owned fire department would be turned over to the fire district.
Councilman Randy Haverfield, a member of the ad hoc committee, said he was reluctant to give up city control of the fire department.......but felt that “The information I was provided was very beneficial, and I appreciated the amount of time chiefs Roberts and (Richard) Davies both spent, along with others as well, because it was very enlightening to me.

Nampa Development Corporation makes first step to sell old church property downtown
NAMPA — Local developer Naide LLC intends to turn an old, boarded-up church in downtown Nampa into urban apartment units — and offered the city’s urban renewal agency $165,000 to do so. Previously, the corporation denied two separate proposals from Mussell Construction to develop on the entire property, mainly because the offer of $150,000 was too low and the proposal included demolishing the existing buildings, said Randy Haverfield, NDC chairman and City Council member.
Naide representatives agreed to keep the historic facade of the building intact, but the interior would need to be gutted to make room for about 20 apartment units, which would be leased at market rate. The remodel will cost approximately $1.1 million plus the land purchase price.

Nampa mayor: Committee will explore buying city golf courses
“The City Council’s charge when it tabled Health and Welfare’s request Aug. 15 for a rezone of the 600-plus acres was clear,” Henry said. “The city needs to tighten up the development agreement and decide if it can purchase one or more of the courses once the lease expires Dec. 31, 2019.”
