Kalispell City Council Meeting to Continue Aug. 4

The meeting will be online-only after dozens of unmasked community members entered council chambers at last night's scheduled meeting

The in-person Kalispell City Council meeting originally scheduled for Aug. 3 will continue to a virtual-only meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 7 p.m. after around 45 mostly unmasked community members entered council chambers on Monday night, according to City Manager Doug Russell.

A few minutes into the meeting, the council passed a motion to continue the following night where it will be online only since people were not complying with the statewide mask mandate.

“We opened up the meeting, did the roll call and Pledge of Allegiance, and as we started off we had a council member make a motion to take the meeting online,” Russell said.

City officials encourage people to submit public comments online at www.kalispell.com.
