Under MCA 2-3-203 All meetings of public or governmental bodies, boards, bureaus, commissions, agencies of the state, or any political subdivision of the state or organizations or agencies supported in whole or in part by public funds or expending public funds, including the supreme court, must be open to the public. The presiding officer of any meeting may close the meeting during the time the discussion relates to a matter of individual privacy and then if and only if the presiding officer determines that the demands of individual privacy clearly exceed the merits of public disclosure. The right of individual privacy may be waived by the individual about whom the discussion pertains and, in that event, the meeting must be open. A meeting may be closed to discuss a strategy to be followed with respect to litigation when an open meeting would have a detrimental effect on the litigating position of the public agency. A meeting may not be closed to discuss strategy to be followed in litigation in which the only parties are public bodies or associations.

The Board of County Commissioners hold regular meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Regularly scheduled meetings allow the Board to "flow" from one agenda item to the next and not hold to the times on the agenda. Calendared meetings may be placed on the schedule on any business day from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Calendared meetings will be held at the scheduled time listed on the agenda. A minimum of 48 hours notice will be provided for scheduled meetings.
The County Commissioners appoint these volunteer boards and they report directly to the Board of County Commissioners.
A mill is one one-thousandth of a dollar, and it is used as a way to count tax levies. It is a very old term, and has continued to be used because there does not seem to be another term available. Each government entity levies mills.
The answer depends on the taxing district, whether improvement have been added, and if the property has been reappraised. Usually, voters in the district approve a school levy or other increase.
Of course! We have changed our Open Riding Policy for this season. All riders will need to come to the Fair Office, sign a hold harmless agreement, and pay $25 for an individual seasonal membership or $5 per individual daily use. Youth 5 years and younger do not need to purchase a membership, but a guardian must sign a waiver and be present when riding. Safety first! The arena will be locked on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Mountette practice, so you must schedule your riding time around practice. The arenas will be worked three times per week, beginning May 1st and are officially opened for riding. Please call us ahead of time for current arena conditions. Thank you! 406-363-3411.
Yes, yes and yes!!!! We can always use volunteers to help beautify our fairgrounds. We are currently in need of some volunteers to pick up microtrash, pull some weeds & paint. One of the best things about the fairgrounds, is that it is a place for all aspects of our community to come together and make connections. We host events throughout the year, and can always use help. If you have special skills, let us know, and we will utilize your help in the best possible way. The fairgrounds will always have a special place in our hearts for those who give their time to help make us great!!
You may also construct shielding using permanent fencing materials. Certain construction specifications are required for proper shielding. If you intend to shield your vehicles, contact your County Junk Vehicle Program prior to construction. Placing tarps or plastics over the vehicles is not acceptable shielding.

It may not be safe for drivers if you attempt to remove the tree yourself. Please do not take any action without first obtaining permission from the County Road Department when working in the easement.
The Road Department’s first grading event happens after the ground is sufficiently thawed (usually April) for grading operations. There are presently four (4) grading districts. Each district takes about three (3) weeks to complete depending on weather and road conditions. Periodic grading events occur throughout the year with one final grading cycle (usually September) prior to entering the winter season. Extra dry roads are especially difficult to grade as they require supplementary water trucks to conduct the operations. Grading during dry weather requires more resources and is accomplished as staffing and resources are available.
The Road Department does not have plans to pave any existing gravel roads. As resources become available, this could be a possibility.
