Montana voters have chance to review their local governments in June elections – $400K for Missoula???

“It’s kind of a Jeffersonian idea – it’s an opportunity for us to refresh and to evaluate,” he said. “We’re not the same state, our counties aren’t the same as they were in 1970, and so I think it’s good for us.”

This June, for the first time since 2014, voters in every part of Montana will decide whether they want to review the structure of their local governments – and possibly make changes.

Montana has 56 counties and 127 cities and towns – including two consolidated city-counties. Every one of them – from Yellowstone County to Petroleum County, and from Billings to Ismay – will put a possible government review on the primary election ballot.
