One of the candidates for Kuna City Council suggested that the city shouldn’t be spending taxpayer dollars on a Kuna Boys & Girls Club, that parents should pay to take care of their own children.
In truth, a Kuna Boys & Girls Club would not cost a dime of taxpayer money. Construction of the Kuna club would come from donated funds from local residents and businesses. Land for the club has been donated by longtime Kuna resident Ralph Mellin. Operation of the club would be paid for by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County through contributions from such organizations as United Way and fundraisers, such as the annual Wild West gala, and funds raised through the individual $10 membership fee to the club.
