“That’s a done deal,” said MayorWendy Judisch. The change will become effective 30 days after the passage.
May 7 will be the first Tuesday meeting, starting at 6 p.m. Monday night football wins again and council reporting will be a week after the May 7 meeting.
There were no comments, yes or no, at the public hearing, or written comment. Also out of the public hearing, a budget amendment to the general fund was passed.

Fourth grade student Jarek Shepherd takes a turn at the churn, creating creamy butter used to top their homemade pasta, also classroom made.
Kim Hofstad’s fourth grade class enjoyed the activities of churning butter and then forming it with a bowl and butter paddles. The butter was later used to top their pasta which they also mixed, cut and boiled in the classroom.
WRESTLING DYNASTY — Over the last 25 years the UMS wrestlers, under Coach Kevin Moritz, have built a wrestling dynasty. Wrestlers have placed first 20 times, including a streak of 17 consecutive years. There was one second place, a third and last year the team was fourth. A new streak has begun with their division win in Fort Benton.
The first place divisional team I made up of, from the left in front, Jenna Barker and Danielle Moritz. In the second row are Joe DeBoo, Blake Larson, Richard Ratzburg, Parker Larson, Ronny Barnhill and Blaine Giachino.

The Utterback Middle School wrestlers were a team on a mission on Saturday.
Win the divisional crown, settle for nothing less. Mission compete.
Coach Kevin Moritz said, “It took an extra effort for the boys to take first place. They had to work hard with only 16 wrestlers, where other teams had us outnumbered by five and six.”
The Buckaroos took the town of Fort Benton by storm along with Big Sandy, Browning, CJ-I, Choteau, DeLaSalle, East Glacier, Fairfield, Simms, Tri-Cities and Valier.
