As the holiday season is upon us, it gives us all an opportunity to pause and reflect on the good, positive things that are going on all around us that we should appreciate and be thankful for. Sometimes we get hung up on the negative because it surrounds us in news articles and television. Unfortunately, negative news sells papers.
I am thankful to have lived in Colstrip for over 47 years and have served our City now for over 20 years. I am thankful for the many organizations that serve our residents:
The Colstrip Medical Center - It’s caregivers, staff and board.
The Colstrip School District - Its staff, board and all the wonderful teachers that work with our most valuable resource, the children of our community.
The Colstrip Park & Recreation District - Its staff and board.
Schoolhouse History and Art Center - It’s staff and board.
Colstrip Library - It’s staff and board.
Colstrip Post Office Staff
I am also thankful for all the wonderful employees of the City of Colstrip that I have had the privilege of working with these past twenty years:

It has been a very busy summer for our city with the many major projects underway. Our street project on Homestead Boulevard and Main Street is going on as scheduled. As I write this, most of the excavation is complete. We did have some unexpected situations like hitting a coal seam that had to be removed and then hitting water in an unexpected location. I guess we should expect coal, after all, this is Colstrip.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to our residents for their patience in driving and driving safely through the construction area. Also, most certainly all of the businesses that are impacted by the construction. We are all doing the best we can to make this a successful project. Paving is scheduled to occur the week of August 22nd with completion to occur the first part of September.
