LIQUOR LICENSING
NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP OF MONTANA ALL-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES LICENSE NO. 13-870-6548-001
On July 1, 2013, Cody Omlid – Sole Proprietor, filed an application for the transfer of a license to be used at THE BEAR’S LAIR BAR AND CASINO, 324 Main Street, Stevensville, Ravalli County, Montana.
Protests against an application must be (1) made in writing, (2) mailed to the Department of Revenue, Liquor Licensing, PO Box 1712, Helena, Montana  59624-1712, and (3) received and date stamped by the Department no later than the 16th day of December 2013. Protests will be accepted from residents of the county from which the application originates, residents of adjoining Montana counties, or residents of adjoining counties in another state if the criteria in subsection (4)(d) are met.
Each protestor is required to mail a separate letter of protest that contains in legible print, the protestor’s full name, mailing address, and street address.  Each letter must be signed by the protestor.  Protest petitions bearing the names and signatures of more than one protestor will not be considered.  Protest letters must provide the license number, trade name, or applicant name associated with the license being protested for identification purposes.  Protest letters must contain a clear statement of the writer’s intent to protest the application.  The grounds for protest of an application for a transfer of location are limited to those set out in section 16-4-405, MCA, for a denial of a license, and public convenience and necessity as set out in section 16-4-203, MCA.  If the protested application is for a transfer of ownership not involving a transfer of location, the grounds for protest are limited to those set out in section 16-4-405, MCA.  Protest letters which do not provide the information described in this paragraph will not be considered valid protest letters.  Only those grounds for protest raised in valid protest letters will be considered at hearing.  An individual’s testimony will be limited to the grounds for protest raised in that individual’s valid protest letter.
If the department receives a sufficient number of protests to require a hearing pursuant to section 16-4-207(4) (a), MCA, a hearing will be scheduled in Helena, Montana.  If the department receives a sufficient number of protests to require a hearing pursuant to section 16-4-207(4) (b), MCA, to determine public convenience and necessity, a hearing will be held in the county in which the proposed premises is located.  All qualified protestors will be notified of the time, date and location of the hearing.  Hearings are typically scheduled within 90 days following the protest deadline.
If a sufficient number of protests to require a hearing are not received and all licensing criteria have been satisfied, the department may issue the license without holding a hearing.

BUDGET AMENDMENT RESOLUTION
At a regular meeting of the Board of Trustees of School District #7, Ravalli County, Montana, held November 12th, 2013, at 7:00pm at the Victor School in Room B the following resolution was introduced:
WHEREAS, the trustees of School District No. 7, Ravalli County, Montana, have made a determination that as a result of an unanticipated enrollment increase, the District’s budget for the general fund does not provide sufficient financing to properly maintain and support the district for the entire current school fiscal year; and
WHEREAS, the trustees have determined that an amendment to the K-12 General fund budget in the amount of $26,147.49 is necessary under the provision of Section 20-9-161 (1), MCA, for an increase in the enrollment of our high school that is beyond what could reasonably have been anticipated at the time of the adoption of the budget for the current school fiscal year whenever, because the enrollment increase, the district’s budget for any or all of the regularly budgeted funds does not provide sufficient financing to properly maintain and support the district for the entire current school fiscal year; and
WHEREAS, the anticipated source of financing the budget amendment expenditures shall be additional state assistance (Direct State Aide – DSA);
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Trustees of School District N0. 7, Ravalli County, Montana, proclaims a need for an amendment to the K-12 general fund for fiscal year 2014 in the amount of $26,147.49 under Section 20-9-161 (1) MCA, for the purpose identified above, and:
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Board of Trustees of School District No. 7, Ravalli County, Montana, will meet at 7:00 p.m. at Victor High School Room B on December 10, 2013 for the purpose of considering and adopting the budget amendment.
