University of Montana, City of Missoula consider merging resources, services (It’s about time!)


“Why don’t we merge resources? We’re in budget constraints, why don’t we merge libraries, why don’t we merge police departments?”

“We can’t be seen as this little enclave across the Clark Fork (River). We actually have to be integrated with the community,” said Reed Humphrey, acting UM provost.

At a meeting of the UM Executive Committee of the Senate on Thursday, Mayor John Engen and President Seth Bodnar expressed desire to collaborate on things like land use planning, police enforcement, parking, library resources and road maintenance.

“The key opportunity that I think continues to exist for UM and the City of Missoula is joint planning,” Engen said.
