In-house Public Defender
Transition to in-house model will coincide with opening of new Administration Building

Decision came after extensive research and recommendation from Criminal Justice Planning Committee

In-house model will improve efficiency and help promote principles of defense

More transparency and accountability

We strongly believe that public defense is a state responsibility that has been delegated to counties for far too long.

Legislature needs to find better funding mechanism
Nampa Prosecution Contract
CCPA prosecutes Nampa's misdemeanors and infractions

Saved Nampa taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars over past four years; $200k in contract costs alone

County does not make a profit

Completely paperless system improves efficiency and effectiveness; saves untold thousands in paper and transportation costs

Very effective and efficient for both City and County
Deputy Prosecutor Erica Kallin
First incarceration facility of any kind in the U.S. to be certified as PREA-Compliant

Canyon County Fair
Lake Lowell
Canyon County remains steadfast in our fight for local oversight and management of Lake Lowell. We urge you all to show your support as we fight together to protect our freedom, heritage, and way of life.
Completion of Canyon Crossroads Transportation Museum will increase number of field trips for students and teachers

New indoor classroom will expand field trip season beyond months of April - October

Citizens and visitors can get first glimpse of Canyon Crossroads in May during Idaho Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month

University partnerships with Boise State University, College of Western Idaho, University of Idaho
The Fair's total budget for 2014 is $375,416 - only .005% of the entire Canyon County Budget

The Canyon County Fair will remain in its current location for 2014 and 2015.

The Fair is currently in discussions with the Ford Idaho Center to determine the feasibility of moving the fair to the Nampa-based event center. We are still awaiting cost proposals from the ID Center.

If moving to the Ford Idaho Center is not feasible, it would cost approx. $10 - $12 million to move the Fair to the proposed location on Hwy 20/26. The money would come from private donations and would not include any additional property tax dollars.

More than 45,000 people attend the Fair each year and it is simply outgrowing its current location, especially with the recent addition of the College of Idaho Football program.
