Nampa committee notes no action taken on plans Ilio Utahi. Krcc Press. Tuesday. Kebruarv 11. 1KV5 - .1 H'ontinued from I'age |) auditorium. '; The council accepted lliis proposal ihe '; same nighl il was presented by Johnson -··but no action was ever taken on il. '., · '" ^"mber ol 1974. the committee was . requested to reactivate itself and bri-ig in ,, an alternative proposal. The resulting plan ,'was accepted by the entire committee Jan ,13, and presented informally to Mavor Starr the following week so he and 'the .-.council could begin consideration of i! .., The proposal suggested: '.' 1. Acquiring the Kenwood School block , .for a future city hall site-since Kenwood . will not be needed by the school district . with completion of new elemenlarv facilities now being built. '. 2 Constructing a new police station and , jail immediately on city-owned property at -,'lhe corner of 12th Avenue and Third Street . .South. ; The committee strongly opposed ., building the police building at that silo. .however, unless the Kenwood properly . ,was acquired at the same lime for a future city hall. Members said they could not , .endorse a plan that would allow only a ..quarter of a block for a city hall. 3. That the city wail until the current , economic silualion has improved before ·.scheduling a bond issue to build a new citv ' hall. , · 4. Thai when a new city hall is built, that ,.|he present city hall site be developed "for . public use. for the benefit of the community and the downtown area." The committee suggested acquiring the Kenwood property by first re-zoning for .public use and then purchasing Ihe block '·lying between the Kenwood block and the ·"Central School block. This properly could [(hen be exchanged for Ihe Kenwood "block--thus eliminating Ihe necessity of the school district selling Kenwood at public auction, and n^un'TM 'he oi'v u-nulri receive (ho proper!) An alternative would be for (he school district to purchase Ihe block between Central and Kenwood, nnd Ihecily lo bid at auction for the Kenwood property. In either case the goal would be for Ihe school district lo own the block next lo its Central properly, and Ihe cily lo own Iho Kenwood block for ils future cily halt. "Although it was apparent ilia I there would need lo be considerable negotiation and cooperative elforl with the Nampa School District to implemenl this proposed plan." the report said, "members of Ihe Citizens Development Commillet? hail conducted sufficient p r e l i m i n a r y investigation to believe that a solution could be wurked out (hat would be of equal benefit to the school district and Iho city." However, the report said, the committee has learned since this proposal was made that "there is not sufficient interest in this proposal on Ihe part of Ihe four city councilmen to discuss il further, and, in fact, a scheduled conference with Ihe school board was cancelled by ihe city for this reason." II concludes: "Realizing that the four city councilmen are nol now. nor have (hey been, seriously inlerested in any proposal other than building on Iho present site, we feel that (here is no further service a committee such as ours can perform. "Unforlunalely. the need for a new city complex is greater than ever. We tried, but apparently our efforts were nol cam- patiblc with Ihe thinking of the administration. We had hoped that the second proposal included compromises that would make Ihe plan widely acceptable. II is our sincere hope thai you have the wisdom and foresight to give Ihe community the leadership it needs at Ihis time to resolve Ihis dilemma." Parole officer outlines problems of probationers Dr. J*an Dowton Dr. Dav* Mumford On the record Beet fieldmen slate Caldwell meet Wednesday CALmVELl. The Amalgamated Sugar Company, Nampa, will conduct its annual sugarbeot fieldman's meeting in Caldwell at Ihe National Guard Armory fob. 12 from 9 a.m. lo noon. Lunch will be served al the meeling and (here is no charge for any grower or landowner interested in attending. The program for the meeting is composed of three persons, each lecturing and discussing a different part of Hie industry. Dr. Joan Dawson is a research agronomist at (he weed control research center in Prosser, Wash. He will discuss weed control as a year-arounri projecl. Dr. Dave Mumford is a pathologist at (he crops research laboratory in Ogdcn, Utah. He will lecture in his specialty, powdery mildew and root rots.

Dave M a l l e r y . Idaho probation and parole officer will) the d i s t r i c t office in Caldwell, ami Carol Amiga, juvenile probation officer with Canyon County, spoke on the problems probalioners anil parolees have in obtaining jobs "Being handicapped is much more lhan a pnysiea! ifiiny." Mallery told the committee. "Il is also emotional anil social, and this is where (he cv-felon comes inlo Hie picture. He is handicapped because he is discriminatedagainsl liy society and business." Ho added that most job application forms contained questions about a past criminal record. An individual who answers yes to being on probation or parole "doesn'l get any consideration whatsoever for a job and Ihis makes him handicapped." .Mallery said he couldn'l blame Ihe employer for not wanting lo hire an ex-felon because many of them arc hurl by crime "But we've gol lo realize t h a t people need a second and third chance." he emphasized. "By making il difficult for the ex-felon to gel a job, placing iiiakt it ··miie oul ol u-ii times." did nol lell Ihe irulh aboul Iheir lie said rurrenl legislation c r i m i n a l records and were Lraijuonsiileretl by Congress lo hired.

Another handicap Ihe ex-felon fuel's is in jobs available lo him Mallery coniinucd He said Ihe formi'i criminal is burred from such job areas as banks, law enforcement or sales for large slores and food chains Most evfelons who do manage lo BUI a job arc employed in nioiiih' home factories, lumber nulls, mining anil farmuork. "Mam ex-felons are qualified ior oilier jobs and llicy cini 1)0 hondcd tlirmigti ihe Stale Employment Office for up to SlO.dWi!" Mallery reported. Kor example, lie said, convenience slores which are oflen hit by armed robbers could Iry them lo go back and lell Ihe trulh." "Ninely (o 95 per cenl of Ihe lime after this, Ihe person is laid oil within a week and given some- phony reason." Mallery said The file of the Probation and Parole Department is open to businessmen, he continued. "We will tell business what an individual's chances are. what lo look for and be prepared lor. I'm nol advocating taking jobs away from oilier people, but when jobs are available, these people should be given equal consideration." Amiga told Slit committee tthcn working w i t h p r o b a t i o n e r s , p a r t i c u l a r l y juveniles, "(he very smallest employing an ex-armed robber things we do can affect Iheir vvtii) lias now gimp slraiglu.

" Mallery added that from his observations, I h e s t a n d a r d employe without a criminal record' "is more likely lu rip otf an employer Ilian someone wilh a criminal record. "I'm nol savins Hie employer isn'l going lo get burned once in a while by hiring an ex-felon." he said, "bnl Ihe same Ihing holds fur Ihe average employe." He asked Ihe mayor's com- hardshipsonhim andhis family, v m i t t c e ^ t o urge businessmen lo he may turn back lo crime." Mallery pointed out, "and Ihis hurls business." If he has a job and income.
