Virginia City council hears Montana Heritage Commission plans to renovate old pump station

With only a couple months of his term left, Scott Petersen led the Virginia City Council through a breezy meeting on Oct. 5. Petersen, who will finish his term in January, said he has enjoyed his time on the council and as mayor.

Will Ennis residents pay to save their streets?

Something has to be done about the awful condition of Ennis’ streets, but there’s not enough money in the town’s road-repair budget to make that happen, according to public works director Kelly Elser.

“If we don’t start to repair and maintain things, all our roads will be gravel in a few more years,” Elser told the town commissioners at last Thursday’s meeting. Not only will all the asphalt be worn away, the streets will undoubtedly be even rougher and more full of potholes than they are now, he said.
