Elected Officials Reveal Insider Secrets Public Never Knew

County Seal 1

It was a first of its kind meeting. Last night the Kootenai County Clerk, Prosecuting Attorney, Sheriff and a County Commissioner met to discuss the chief reasons affecting the county’s ability to fight crime and keep your taxes low. Never before have county elected officials been so brutally honest about the challenges of keeping this community safe.


In this video presentation, citizens will see: 

  • The single biggest factor behind your county government’s excessive growth
  • Why the Prosecutor sometimes has to wait one (even two) years before he pulls the trigger to prosecute a criminal
  • The two major reasons why our jail has exceeded its legal inmate population limit every day for the last two years
  • How the County Clerk plays the lynchpin role making sure the County doesn’t overspend your tax dollars and keep your elections safe
  • The biggest challenge facing every elected official and why it could lead to criminals avoiding prosecution.

But that’s not all.

Viewers also will see how property tax revenues (despite the current levy rate) still don’t cover the cost of county justice services. Where the County gets revenue to cover that shortfall. How much of the county budget is allocated toward justice services (hint: it’s greater than 50%), the shocking increase of FY23 expenditures into FY24 (hint: elected officials went into overdrive to keep it manageable) and more.
