Making connections to a military unit and changing directions for a military road are on tap for Missoula government this week.
The Missoula City Council is considering joining a national program for "adopting" a unit of the U.S. military, similar to the relationships it has with sister cities. It will decide whether to do so, and if so, which unit to adopt, at its Monday meeting.
The council also has two public hearings. The first involves preparation of applications for federal Housing and Urban Development loans and Brownfields Economic Development funds. The second is to consider awarding $805,000 in sidewalk, curb, gutter and alley approach bonds. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in Missoula City Hall, 435 Ryman St.
Several roads may be altered Wednesday at the Missoula County commissioner's regular public meeting. The commissioners are reviewing Grass Valley Road, U.S. Military Road and Missoula County Book 1 Road. The meeting takes place at 1:30 p.m. in Missoula County Courthouse Annex room 201.
