City council breezes through agenda

By Buck Traxler, I-O Editor

City council members moved through their agenda in just under a half hour on Monday.

They were helped along by tabling or moving a few items to the next regular meeting and wasting little, if any time, on action items.

There were no zoning or building permits or water contacts to act on and there were no public comments.

Mark Gage was presented with a city certificate of appreciation for doing extra volunteer work at the ball fields.


Aldermen moved to have a contract worked up with Kyle Harlen to become a commercial building inspector for the city. There will be more on this when the contract is finalized.


Former mayor John Shevlin was appointed to the DUI Task Force board, a brief report was given by Public Works Director Rich Anderson on the Industrial Park.

Permission was granted to the North Central Montana Rural Water to gain access to city property for the purpose of doing survey work.

The next regular meeting of the city council will be on Aug. 1, 7:30 p.m. in city hall 411-1/2 S. Main Street.

The public is always welcome and encouraged to come and see their government at work.
