A potential update to the Powell County Superfund Overlay District section of the Zoning and Development Regulations will be available for review and comment at an Open House at the Community Center on May 20 from 4-6 PM.  The Community Center is located at 416 Cottonwood Ave in Deer Lodge.  The Open House will be an opportunity for residents to provide MT DEQ and Planning Department with comments on the proposed update.  Mapping exhibits will display the extent of the superfund district.  For more information, please contact Carl Hamming, Powell County Planning Director at (406) 846-9729.

BEWARE OF PHONE SCAM

 We have received reports of a scam artist who has been telling citizens they have a warrant because they did not show up for jury duty.  The caller further threatens that there are outstanding fees and that law enforcement is coming to their house with an arrest warrant.

Please know that if you are called for jury duty in Powell County you will receive a jury duty notice in the mail and a follow up call verifying you have received your notice.  WE DO NOT ASK FOR MONEY OR THREATEN WARRANTS.

Anyone who receives such a call is urged not to provide any information to the caller and to contact the Powell County Sheriff’s Office at 406-846-2711.
