City Plans More Town Hall Meetings in Kalispell

City leaders are hosting more town hall meetings following the success of an event earlier this month.

Kalispell Ward 3 council members Rod Kuntz and Jim Atkinson met with a handful of residents two weeks ago for a town hall meeting.

Kuntz said, “although turnout was light for the first meeting, it was well received and very productive.”

The topics that were discussed at the first meeting included planning and building the right infrastructure for the growing community; how planning should instill community values of family, business, arts, history and the environment; and funding challenges and how to deal with infrastructure by non-taxed users that result in congestion, degradation, and loss of quality.

Future town hall meetings are scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 30, Wednesday, Nov. 4, and Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015 at 7 p.m. City officials remind residents that the meetings are not an opportunity to voice personal complaints, but rather an opportunity to discuss community issues. No formal action will be taken at these meetings.
