Public Hearing: Snow Removal Alternatives
May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN to all persons that the City Council of the City of Columbia Falls, Montana, will hold a public hearing on snow removal alternatives on 9th Street West, also known as Highway 2, traveling east/west through the City. The MT Department of Transportation has proposed berming the snow to the middle of the roadway instead of placing the snow on the adjoining sidewalks, making them impassable in the winter. Alternatively, the City Council has discussed a special fee for the adjoining property owners that would provide funding to hire a contractor to clear the sidewalks on both sides of the roadway.
The City Council of Columbia Falls is encouraging public comment on these alternatives and will conduct a public hearing on the snow removal alternatives at the regular meeting of the City Council at 7:00 p.m., on May 1, 2017 in the Council Chambers, 130 6th Street West, Columbia Falls, Montana, at which time and place all persons desiring to be heard on said matter may appear and offer comments on the proposed abandonment. Written comments may be addressed to the City Clerk, 130 6th Street West, Room A, Columbia Falls, Montana 59912 prior to the hearing.
