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.
