Ha'Penny owner: We're here to stay

Ha'Penny Bridge owner Dell Jaha responded to an inquiry from BoiseDev.com in April about the future of his restaurant.

We reported at the time the space currently occupied by Ha'Penny & Happy Fish is for lease by building owner Hawkins Companies.

Jaha explains his take:

"The Ha'Penny is not going anywhere. We are planning to be here for some time. The land lord is checking the waters to see how much the rent can be increased due to JUMP being close to finished," he wrote. "I am sure they feel that this is a valued spot downtown with all that is going on."

Despite what Jaha says is water testing by Hawkins - he has no plans to leave.

"We are not going anywhere."
