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.

Congratulations Colstrip!! We have just completed a very successful twenty years as an incorporated City. I would like to share a brief history on how we became incorporated and why.
This all began when Montana Power Company, as the operating owner of the power plants, advised the community that they would be removing themselves of any responsibility of providing services. They were planning on eliminating all of the services provided by Colstrip Community Services. This process began in 1997 and early 1998 with a reorganization of the Power Plant Administration Services. The companies initiated a program they called ‘Vision 2000’. They hired a consultant group out of California and gave them the task of reviewing their organiza-tional structure to make it more streamlined and cost efficient. As one of their Vice Presidents stated “We need to became more like Enron” (little did they know).
John Williams, Mayor
