ACHD Commissioners Will Decide on Budget for Upcoming Fiscal Year

Ada County Highway District Commissioners will discuss and adopt the budget for Fiscal Year 2023 during a public hearing on Wednesday, August 24.

The public hearing will take place in the Michael L. Brokaw Auditorium at ACHD's Headquarters in Garden City starting at 6 p.m. The meeting will also be livestreamed.

Members of the public are invited to weigh in on the proposed budget during the public hearing. Those wanting to participate can do so in person, or virtually via zoom.

Commissioners will decide on the final budget at the meeting after the public hearing concludes.

The proposed $186.8 million budget includes projects to increase safety and mobility, and also provides for the maintenance and operation of Ada County's roads, sidewalks, traffic signals, bike lanes and related infrastructure.

Commissioners will be considering a $46.3 million Property Tax Certification, which includes an increase of $1.2 million on new construction value. The Commission elected not to take any of the 3 percent allowable increase to the Property Tax Certification. These considerations were set by Commission direction at the August 3 meeting and published in the Idaho Press.

ACHD runs on a fiscal year that begins in October. This year's proposed budget includes $14 million in pedestrian improvements and bikeways, as well as an $80 million capital program with more than 100 projects.

Proposed construction projects for the 2023 budget include:

  • Improving Locust Grove Road between Victory Road and Overland Road
  • Revamping Star Road Bridges #1093 and #2040
  • A new Victory Road and Locust Grove Road Roundabout
  • Upgraded Pedestrian Crossings at Warm Springs Avenue and Maynard Avenue; Warm Springs Avenue and Sky Bar Street
  • Enhanced pedestrian facilities on Floating Feather Road, Brandon Road and Hornback Avenue; Cory Lane, Mitchell Street and Maple Grove Road

Those unable to attend the meeting can submit comments online through TellUs, or send them to 3775 Adams St., Garden City, ID 83714.
