Commission airs findings COLUMBIA FALLS - Overtaxed and undervalued, the City of Columbia Falls would belt benefit from dis- incorporation according to findings released recently to county commissioners by the city's local government study commission. In a summary of the commission's tentative report recommending disincorporation for voter review, the group said "disincorporation is the best alternative as the county can provide the governmental services required at a lower tax rate." While the Board of County Commissioners dispute such a contention, the study group said it supports dis- incorporation because "Columbia Falls cannot provide the services we need except at an extreme tax rate." The report said Columbia Falls residents "feel they are being overtaxed." The result is "dissatisfaction with the present established government." During the current fiscal year, Columbia Falls city government operated on a budget of $202,500 as based on a levy of 81 mills. Also offering disincorporation as an alternative to the voters are the cities of Libby, Wibaux and West Yellowstone. The commission reported incorporation as efficient in the state's early history but in many respects a traditional -- but necessarily efficient -- action during recent years. "In the future, counties will be able to provide services to people which they could not provide before. Disincorporation provides a means by which cities can receive the services at a reduced cost," the study group wrote. By disincorporating, the study group feels, Columbia Falls residents would fall under a larger district and greater tax base. All of Anaconda Aluminum aud most of Plum Creek Lumber Co. fall outside the city limits. Other advantages of disincorporation, according to the group, would be elimination of duplicated services and the resultant reduction of costs. Community identity would remain solid because the city post office and Columbia Falls School Dist. S would retain the familiar name. Although the commission says the current mayor; council government has the advantage of allowing local control, it also blasts declining citizen interest in local government. "Interest... fell to an all-time low during the last city election when none of the candidates for council had an opponent. One of the positions had to be filled by appointment..." the group wrote. On the other hand, to the detriment of the disincor- poration plan the study group said some short range efficiency problems may be encountered. Listed as possible pitfalls would be fewer police officers, possible tardiness in street repair and snow removal and hostility on the part of the county commissioners in supplying needed service. Preparation of the commission's final report will be completed following a public bearing July 7 at 8 p.m. in the city council chambers. City voters will endorse or reject the alternate form of government on Sept. 21. obituaries Family style chicken -dinner or baron of beef Treat the -rtole family today with^our Sunday specials.'
