“As the largest city on this side of the state, Idaho Falls has long been a resource for eastern Idaho cities,” Casper said in a statement. “The (association) is considered a vital resource when it comes to the management of all of Idaho’s cities. Combining our presence with that resource means a lot. I am very excited for this opportunity.”
