POLSON — Commissioner Todd Erickson gave an overview of the positive things happening in Ward 1 during the city commissioners meeting on Nov. 19.

Some of the items he mentioned were a retail and online quilting machine business had filled the old Eddie’s Drug space; the facade of The First Resort had been updated; a walking path had been built in Sacajawea Park; and a childcare center moved into Crazy Mike’s old space.

In other business, the commissioners appointed Barbara Smith as Ward 1 representative to the golf board. Her two-year term will begin on Jan. 1.

They also approved the transfer of ownership and location of a beer license to 4-B’s Restaurant.

The first reading of Ordinance No. 663, adopting floodplain management regulations within the city of Polson, was approved. 

The commissioners scheduled two workshops, the first on Dec. 17 at 6 p.m. preceding the commission meeting. The purpose is to meet with Knife River personnel regarding the possibility of an 80-acre annexation into the city with zone change. The second workshop is a strategic planning workshop with city staff on Jan. 9 from 1 until 4 p.m.

The next city commissioner’s meeting will be held on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m.
