This is the last call for people to submit questions and concerns in advance of the summer Inter Local Agreement meeting on July 15 at 1:00 pm. Please have them to Bill Walker by the end of Wednesday, July 8 (contact information below). You can always bring things up with the various government agencies during the meeting, but you’ll often get a better or more complete answer if you give them a chance to think about things ahead of time.
For those of you not familiar with the purpose of Inter Local meetings, the meetings were established quite a few years ago in support of the North Fork Inter Local Agreement, which provides for face-to-face contact with representatives of agencies whose policies and actions affect the North Fork Flathead region. Inter Local Agreement meetings are held in the winter (in town) and summer (at Sondreson Hall). Governmental agencies participating at meetings include Flathead County (including the roads people), the Flathead National Forest, Glacier National Park, Montana DNRC, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, Montana Department of State Lands, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the border patrol. The local organizations are the North Fork Compact, North Fork Preservation Association, North Fork Land Owners Association, North Fork Road Coalition for Health and Safety and the North Fork Trails Association. This summer, the meeting is sponsored by the North Fork Trails Association.
This is always a very interesting meeting, with reports from a range of government agencies and local organizations and often some quite vigorous discussion.
The day actually starts at 9:30 am with the Annual Firewise meeting, followed by a potluck lunch at noon with the North Fork Trails Association providing the burgers and brats. The Inter Local meeting begins at 1:00 pm.
