Riggins News: ‘Wellness Summit’ on tap for Jan. 16

My quote for the week was sent to me from my niece Erin: “I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough friends to get you through the final good-bye. I wish you all enough in the New Year!”

Tax bill includes new roads levy, higher garbage service fees

With notices in the mail, some who own property in Idaho County have seen a big new tax on the bill. Others have seen a tax rate lower than it was last year, but some of those who have seen their rates dip are still owing local governments more overall this year due to a rise in county solid waste fees. Still others – namely, those whose property is served by the Idaho County Road & Bridge Department – have seen both a higher solid waste fee and a significantly higher overall tax rate due to the new levy, which the county commission began considering last summer and approved in September.
