June primary ballots give voters a chance to re-think their local government structures

Once a decade, Montanans can vote to audit the foundations of their local governments. Local advocates are pushing for “yes” votes this year in Bozeman and Billings.
Should City and County organizations merge to form a more efficient and economically less expensive single governing body and should term limits be imposed are among many questions that citizens need to consider.
If voters approve a review for a particular government on June 4, a study commission will be elected this November to review potential changes to local governance and suggest solutions. Residents who are eligible to hold elected office in their jurisdiction can file to join the commission. After nearly two years of study, the commission suggests changes, and voters have the chance to accept or reject the commission’s proposals.
