Bozeman City Commissioners consider giving $6,000 to partially fund a homeless shelter for the winter season.
City Manager Chris Kukulski said the money would provide about half the money needed to sustain a shelter.
Bozeman's Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) worked with the Gallatin County Fairgrounds to open a warming center for a few days during last week's cold snap.
Kukulski says the HRDC would manage the city funds to open a center for the rest of the winter.
Bozeman stands as Montana's only major city without a homeless shelter after the Amos House closed to overnight use this summer.
Commissioners will also review the priorities of the city's Economic Development Council.
The meeting starts tonight at 6 at City Hall.
