Except that Idaho City is in Boise County, which is covered by a 
different rule, so maybe it's not referring to Idaho City after all.  It 
all depends which rule covers Idaho City.

So which rule covers Idaho City, America/Los_Angeles or America/Boise?

Whichever rule it is, I guess the comment(s) could be improved.
