The Local Government Interim Committee (LGIC) will meet September 12 at 8:30 a.m. in Room 137 of the State Capitol in Helena. The committee will finalize its work plan and strategize how the committee will meet its study goals for the duration of the interim.
The committee will learn about different types of wastewater systems to begin research into their assigned study resolution, SJ 3. The Department of Environmental Quality is also on the agenda to explain its role in subdivision review and report to the committee on upcoming rule updates. The afternoon will be devoted to financial topics as the committee wades into the history of the entitlement share program and learns more about local government annual budgeting and financial reporting requirements.
The public and all interested stakeholders are invited to attend, and a draft agenda and all meeting materials are posted on the LGIC website. The meeting will be streamed live at http://leg.mt.gov and broadcast on the Montana Public Affairs Network (MPAN).
