A long-running dispute over a salt shed in Garden City won’t hit a jury trial after all.
This week, the Ada County Highway District and the city of Garden City reached a compromise on how long the multi-story salt shed would stay on Adams Street, permitting for the building, and new sidewalks and trees along ACHD’s property. This agreement will end all legal action between the two local governments on the salt shed’s location after roughly two years of conflict and multiple court actions.
The compromise was ACHD Commission President Mary May, ACHD Commission Vice President Alexis Pickering, Garden City Mayor John Evans and Garden City City Council President James Page. Garden City has hoped to see the salt shed leave the area, calling it “overwhelming” and inappropriately zoned while ACHD said the central location of the maintenance yard was essential to the highway district’s winter operations.
