Dur- ing the next few Mon- tana is going to be involved in one of the most significant local government movements ever undertaken in the U.S. Due to an article placed in the Montana Montanans have an opportuni- ty to reform local government units which have changed very little in the past 85 the Cut Bank Pioneer Press said in a recent story. Each local government unit in Montana is required by the new Montana constitution to carry out a review of their government and to research possible alternatives in form to put before the people in a vote in 1976 This designed to change the government cost less and do without forced changes but by forcing the people of Montana to determine whether they can do is scheduled to oc- cur every 10 years. STUDY COMMISSIONS Each local government unit in Montana must establish a study commission which will investigate forms of local j government and conclude its work with a report and recommendation to voters for the 1976 election. A campaign for and against adoption of the recommended alternative form of govern- ment will follow in each com- munity. In jurisdictions which adopt new forms of voters will elect officials to the new government and a period of transition from the old to the new form will follow. By the time the review winds up in 1977 or early in all Montanans will have had an opportunity for careful study and reform of their local government and some counties and municipalities may be starting a new chapter in their local public says the Cut Bank newspaper. time for running cities and counties from Helena is says Richard Resse of public administration specialist for the Montana Commission on Local Government.
