Large Crowd at Interlocal Meeting

Summer Interlocal 2024

Sondreson Hall was packed for the Summer Interlocal meeting led by Debo Powers and hosted by the North Fork Preservation Association.  The Interlocal meeting helps to facilitate communication between North Fork landowners and the various agencies who manage the public land in the North Fork.  97% of the North Fork is public land.  Updates were presented by Glacier National Park, Flathead National Forest, Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks, Montana DNRC, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and others.

School Levies produced winners and losers across Montana

Fortunately, Whitefish passed the school levy and Columbia Falls passed 2 out of 3 school levies, including the high school levy to repair the roof.  But elsewhere in the state, school levies did not do so well leaving public schools struggling to meet their budgets.

Amanda Curtis, President of the Montana Federation of Public Employees (MFPE), placed the blame on the Legislature when she said:

“Every Montana kid has a constitutional right to a quality public education, and last night’s levies divided our kids into winners and losers,” Curtis said of the election results in large and small districts throughout the state. “This is the direct result of the 2023 Legislature’s one-two punch of failing to fund schools at the inflationary rate and then pricing Montanans out by shifting property taxes from corporations to homeowners.”
