This week we also have some updates to previous stories featured on The Week in Self Storage

  • A few weeks ago we learned about the state of Idaho‘s purchase and management of a self-storage property in that state and the ensuing controversy.  After a formal complaints were lodged with the state by the Self Storage Association and the Idaho Self Storage Association, George B. Bacon, director of the Idaho Department of Lands, has responded.  Bacon stated that it is the state of Idaho’s practice to purchase and manage properties including office buildings and parking lots to mitigate taxes for Idaho citizens and support public schools and other institutions.  His full response is available in pdf form here.
