Officer James Tanner Donovan shakes hands Monday with members of Havre City Council after it approved his appointment as a patrol officer to the Havre Police Department.

The Havre City Council at their meeting Monday unanimously confirmed Officer James Tanner Donovan to the position of patrol officer with the Havre Police Department effective Nov. 30.

Havre Assistant Chief of Police Jason Barkus said Donovan has successfully completed a one-year probationary period and fulfilled other requirements necessary for confirmation.

"Officer Donovan has proven to be a very solid and dedicated officer with great professional skills to continue his role as a police officer with the Havre Police Department," Barkus said.

Council President Andrew Brekke said a meeting of the Ordinance Committee is scheduled for Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. in City Hall, to discuss whether medical marijuana storefront dispensaries within city limits should be banned or regulated through zoning.

The council also unanimously approved a resolution amending the amount listed for a grant because the incorrect amount was listed in the city's Fiscal Year 2018 budget.

The $421,000 Community Development Block Grant from the Montana Department of Commerce was accidentally listed as $241,000 in the $18.7 million budget that council approved at their Sept. 6 budget hearing.

The $421,000 grant will be used to make building improvements to the Boys & Girls Club of the Hi-Line.

The next council meeting is scheduled for Monday Dec. 4 at 7 p.m.
