Your July 26 editorial “No one’s Private Idaho” completely misses the point. The issue is not whether the county should enforce rights-of-way violations, but rather how they should be enforced.
The county clearly does not have the budget to enforce the thousands of ROW violations in the county. The practical and fair way to handle violations is to find and focus on violations that cause safety and snow-plowing problems throughout the county and enforce those hot-spot areas.
The “uproar” from Hulen Meadows residents stemmed from the fact that the county singled out their neighborhood for enforcement, regardless of whether a violation was causing a problem, while ignoring violations in the rest of the county.
