Bozeman Drainage Fix Could Cost $1.7M a Year
BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Bozeman officials are proposing to spend $1.7 million a year over the next decade to upgrade its underground storm water system.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports an 18-month study found pipes that were broken, slumping, cracked and fractured along parts of the 93-miles system.

It also found a buildup of trash and sediment along inlets and outfalls into creeks and rivers. Pollution is finding its way into the system.

The city's staff is recommending the 10-year, $1.7 million annual spending for the needed upgrades.

Mayor Jeff Krauss said previously it was clear the money to fix the system would come from a tax increase.

The city commission will take up the issue in a Monday evening meeting.

Browning, Blackfeet Utility Dispute Goes to Court
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Browning officials say Blackfeet tribal leaders are mailing false billing notices to residents in an attempt to take over the towns' water, sewer and garbage services.

The town filed a complaint in U.S. District Court alleging fraud and racketeering by the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council.

The complaint alleges that a tribal attorney stole the town's utility customer lists.

The Great Falls Tribune reports town officials are seeking a court order to stop the tribal council from billing customers and interfering with its operations.

The complaint says the tribal council began sending notices to residents last year telling them to send their sewer and water payments to a tribal-owned utility company.

The tribal council has not yet responded to the complaint filed April 9.
