A public hearing date has been set by the Missoula county commissioners to request putting a $15 million open space bond on the November ballot.

The Missoula Board of County Commissioners will conduct a public hearing on Monday, July 9th at 9:00 a.m. in Room 151 of the Missoula County Courthouse Annex, 200 W. Broadway.

The general obligation bonds would be used for conserving and enhancing open space land and making improvements to open space lands.

Pending the outcome of that public hearing, commissioners have until the end of August to place the bond issue on the November ballot.  

Last Tuesday, the Missoula city council approved supporting the proposed $15 million open space bond in conjunction with Missoula County.
