Commissioners Support Cape Air’s Service
After the Montana Essential Air Service Task Force unanimously recommended Cape Air to be kept as the regional provider, the Roosevelt County Commissioners provided a letter of support for Cape Air to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
The letter includes, “As a rural community in Montana, travel is essential to obtain health care services that may not be provided by our local hospitals and/or clinics. Cape Air’s schedule and rates allow for economical time saving travel, allowing better access to health care services and shopping options not available locally. Roosevelt County is pleased to learn that the Task Force has recommended Cape Air for another contract term.”
The commissioners unanimously agreed to send the letter during their meeting on Tuesday, June 27.
Also during the meeting, commissioners approved the Gourneau minor subdivision final plat and ag covenant lift, and the Owens III minor subdivision final plat.
Commissioners re-appointed Judy Romo and James Harvey to the Council on Aging board.
Curtis Red Eagle was hired to work for the detention center.
Commissioners accepted the resignation of road department employee Jacob Gibby.
