BOZEMAN — The Bozeman City Commision will have a joint meeting with the Bozeman School District on Monday at City Hall to talk about topics of mutual interest.

Some of these topics will include discussions about affordable housing — and the possibility of using school-owned land to provide housing options for school district employees.

City commissioners and the Bozeman School District will also discuss Gallatin High School’s future library and the possibility of turning it into a substation of the Bozeman Public Library.

Also on the agenda is a discussion about how the Bozeman School District, among other local organizations, can work together on an early-reading program targeting young children of low-income families.

"Bozeman people know how important early reading is. When you read well, you will just excel," said Bozeman City Commissioner I-Ho Pomeroy. "And then as soon as you figure out how to read, your horizon is going to be wide open."

The meeting will take place around 7:30 p.m. at City Hall.

The public is welcome to attend.
