Council approves agreement with BCSO


April 24, 2019

The Three Forks City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve an Interlocal Agreement between the City of Three Forks and the Broadwater County Sheriff's Office to share office space at 115 Main Street.

The location is currently being utilized by the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office.

Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin spoke in favor of the agreement.

"The more we can work together the better," he said.

Three Forks Mayor Steven Hamilton said the short version of the agreement is that they are providing a space for a deputy to work.

Broadwater County Sheriff Wynn Meehan told the council he has a new deputy will start working soon and his area will start at Milligan Canyon.

Hamilton said this will put somebody down at this end of the valley and that helps everybody.

Meehan said the goal is to have four deputies in the area. He added they are also in discussions of putting a public safety center in the southern end of Broadwater County.

Hamilton said the agreement is not going to fix issues over night, but they are working on fixing it.

In other business, the Council voted unanimously to allow the Three Forks Chamber to utilize Milwaukee Park in Thursday evenings for the 2019 Farmer's Market.

The annual Farmer's Market will take place every Thursday from July 11 to September 5 and will include a non-profit cooking at each event to raise money for their organization.
