24 Sep Hearing Tuesday 9 am to Require the County to Recognize the June 5th vote
Hearing this Tuesday 9 am to Require the County to Recognize the June 5th vote — Please Attend
On September 25th, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, District Court Judge Allison will hear the complaint brought by the Egan Slough Community (the group who spearheaded the June 5th ballot initiative to expand the Egan Slough Zoning District) to force the county to enforce the regulations of the Egan Slough Zoning District based on the successful June 5th ballot. This would require the county to enforce the cessation of the Montana Artesian Water Company’s ongoing operations in deference to the established zoning district regulations.
The hearing will be at the County Courthouse, 920 S. Main Street, at 9:00 a.m. on the third floor. The specific room will be listed on the reader board within the courthouse. Please wear blue in support of our water, and sit on the side reserved for the plaintiffs (Egan Slough Community) and their lawyers. Be respectful of the proceedings and honor proper protocol as this is a very significant event in the evolution of our county’s government. Be there to witness history.
Water for Flathead’s Future’s upcoming hearing in front of Judge Seeley in Helena
On October 10th, the attorneys for Water for Flathead’s Future will present oral arguments in front of District Court Judge Seeley. Water for Flathead’s Future was never confident that the evidence that was developed in preparation for the hearing in front of the DNRC would get a ‘fair shake’ since the hearing examiner is an employee of the DNRC whose bias would, could, and should be questioned. This hearing in front of the District Judge is the first opportunity in over 2 1/2 years to have the evidence and the laws laid out and reviewed with impartiality. It is our firm belief that we will prevail in this and all subsequent contests based on facts, evidence, and the rule of law.
