City Council Taking Comments On Wastewater Impact Fee

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Kalispell's city council is going to be busy tonight.

One of the first things on the agenda is looking over a more than $70,000 bid to refurbish the roof and walls covering some water tanks underground on the Buffalo Hills golf course.

This was the only bid they got for the project.

They're also going to start taking the temperature on the proposed wastewater impact fee hike.

"It's one of those challenging items on there and I think that's probably what we'll hear tonight," said Doug Russell, the city manager of Kalispell.

The impact fee advisory committee recommends almost doubling the fee to more than $5,700 per home.

Everyone can come and share their two cents.

The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. in city hall and Russell says council could go ahead and make a final decision tonight.

    KHQ.COM - Mid August is about the time that we start to see spiders come into our homes, particularly the hobo spider. August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.
