Perhaps someone knows the answer to this question about the new community college. Will tuition be higher for residents of counties other than Canyon and Ada ? If an Emmett resident enrolls, will he or she pay higher fees, since Gem County property owners aren't paying part of the cost of the college?
Ada County residents are already subsidizing - to an extent - residents of surrounding counties who work in Ada County. Ada County residents pay a highway district fee to support the Ada County Highway District (called HDR on the registration). Folks that live in other counties and work in Boise don't pay that fee, but do use the roads. I'm okay with that, but I do wish those same folks had to meet Ada County vehicle emission standards.
