Council returning to port support and CTEP funding

Zach White

The Havre City Council will return to some of the loose ends left in the end of last year during tonight's 7 p. m. meeting at City Hall.

The first agenda item to talk about is Resolution 3580, "A Resolution by the City of Havre Affirming Support for the Designation of 24-Hour Commercial Status for the International Ports of Entry for the Ports of Wild Horse and Turner. "

The resolution was introduced late last year but was put on hold after some council members felt it would be best to wait and check in with Montana's senators before making a decision.

Mayor Tim Solomon said that since that time, the city has been assured that it can move forward with the resolution.

"We're satisfied that our local resolution is not going to affect (anything) up at that level, " Solomon said.

The mayor said that the resolution is just meant as a sign of support.

The next items of discussion at tonight's meeting are the proposals being sent to the Montana Department of Transportation for its Community Transport Enhancement Project funds.

Before the council's meeting on Nov. 15, there was a public hearing about how the funds should be spent. Most of the proposals at the time were for sidewalks, particularly around the Atrium Mall, on 2nd and 3rd avenues and 2nd and 3rd streets.

The ideas proposed were sifted and narrowed down to the best, which will be discussed at the council tonight before being sent to the state.
