NOTICE OF ORDINANCE CHANGE TO BE HEARD

The Three Forks City Council will hold  public hearings at 7:00PM on November 28th, 2017, for the first reading of the following ordinance amendments:

  • Title 11, Chapter 20, Section 2 of the Three Forks Municipal Code to implement an after-the-fact zoning permit fee.
  • Title 12, Chapter 1, Section 7 of the Three Forks Municipal Code to implement an after-the-fact floodplain permit fee.

The second reading of these ordinances is scheduled at 7:00PM on December 12th, 2017, pending no major changes at the first reading’s hearing.

Please contact the City Office at (406) 285-3431 for any questions.  Written and verbal public comment will be accepted at the hearings.  Written comment may be submitted at cturner@threeforksmontana.us or ksmith@threeforksmontana.us.

Upon successful approval of this ordinance, the City intends to set this fee (via resolution) at twice the application fee.  The application fee for a zoning permit is based on structure type; the minimum fee will be $50.00 for an after-the-fact permit.  The floodplain permit fee is currently $150.00, so an after-the-fact permit fee would cost $300.00.
