BOZEMAN, Mont. – The Bozeman Police Department continues to campaign for the proposed November ballot levy for a $37 million Public Safety Center by hosting two town halls.

The town halls will take place on September 19 in the Bozeman Public Library Community Room, and October 3 at Fire Station #3.

Both town halls will be held from 6-9 p.m. Representatives from the city’s fire, police and courts will be at the meetings to engage with the public on what why a new facility is needed and the current challenges city employees face in the current buildings.

“You know that past experience has shown that a lot of times people just aren’t aware of the issues that are out there that are driving the need for projects like this,” said Bozeman Police Chief Steve Crawford. “So this is absolutely about education and making sure people understand what the project is and why the need is there.”

Updated 4:25 p.m. MDT,  9/4/2018 — An earlier version of this story stated that both town halls would be held at Fire Station #3. The Sept. 19 town hall will be held in the Bozeman Public Library Community Room.
