County receives praise A spokesman for the Department of Community Affairs praised Flathead County officials Wednesday for their response to a county aduit conducted by the department Mar. 24. In a letter received by Flathead County commissioners Thursday, DCA Administrator George Pendergast said he wants to thank the commissioners and county attorney Patrick M. Springer for their "detailed response" to the audit. "The combined cooperation and action taken by Flathead County officials is commendable," Pendergast said. Commissioners okay proposal The Flalhead County commliiloneri have granted preliminary approval of the Greenacres West subdivl- lion, located south of Kalijpell near South Woodland Avenue. The commiMlonera took the action following an onsite inspection of the proposed development Wednesday. But the commissioners made final approval contingent on several stipulations. Among them was one requiring all roads serving the subdivision to remain private until the developers surface the roads with asphalt according to county specifications, before the development reaches 60 per cent occupancy. Commissioner Mel Wollan said the stipulation was imposed because of "excessive maintenance costs to the county" if the roads remained graveled. Other conditions imposed by the commissioners were that all dwellings in the development be placed on concrete foundations and that sufficient park land be dedicated. The commissioners said "it has been determined there is a need in Flathead County for the type of housing indicated for this subdivision." They said the development will produce "no appreciable effect on agriculture in the area, and will produce no overload of public services " Th*0«ty Two face charges Cooler with scattered showers and gusty winds this afternoon, decreasing tonight is the weather forecast for the Flathead Valley.
