PUBLIC OPPORTUNITY TO PROTEST TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP OF MONTANA
ALL-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES LICENSE
Copper Queen Saloon, LLC (Katherine Applegate, Owner) has applied to transfer Montana All-Alcoholic Beverages License No. 28-999-6213-001 to be operated at Copper Queen Saloon, 320 N Main St., Helmville, Powell County. The public may protest this license transfer in accordance with the law.
Who can protest this transfer? Protests will be accepted from residents of the county of the proposed location (Powell), residents of adjoining Montana counties ( Flathead, Missoula, Granite, Deer Lodge, Lewis and Clark, and Jefferson), and residents of adjoining counties in another state if the criteria in 16-4-207(4)(d), Montana Code Annotated (MCA), are met.
What information must be included? Protest letters must be legible and contain (1) the protestor’s full name, mailing address, and street address; (2) the license number (28-999-6213-001) and the applicant’s name (Copper Queen Saloon, LLC); (3) an indication that the letter is intended as a protest; (4) a description of the grounds for protesting; and (5) the protestor’s signature. A letter with multiple signatures will be considered one protest letter.
What are valid protest grounds? The protest may be based on the applicant’s qualifications listed in 16-4-401, MCA, or the grounds for denial of an application in 16-4-405, MCA. Examples of valid protest grounds include: (1) the applicant is unlikely to operate the establishment in compliance with the law; (2) the proposed location cannot be properly policed by local authorities; and (3) the welfare of the people in the vicinity of the proposed location will be adversely and seriously affected.
How are protests submitted? Protests must be postmarked to the Department of Revenue, Office of Dispute Resolution, P.O. Box 5805, Helena, Montana 59604-5805 on or before May 7th, 2018.
What happens if the transfer is protested? Depending on the number of protests and the protest grounds, a public hearing will be held in Helena or Helmville. All valid protestors will be notified of the hearing’s time, date and location. Hearings typically are scheduled within 90 days. A protester’s hearing testimony is limited to the grounds in the protester’s letter. Following the hearing, the Department of Revenue will notify the public whether the license transfer is approved or denied.

PUBLIC COMMENT SOUGHT
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) seeks public review of its proposal to conduct forest habitat restoration treatments on approximately 465 acres of the Nevada Lake WMA located SE of Helmville in Powell County. The purpose is to improve elk winter forage, restore historic open-stand conditions dominated by large-diameter ponderosa pine, restore a stand structure that allows fire to burn at the low severity appropriate for the historic fire regime, recruit ponderosa pine regeneration, and reduce fuel loading. The treatments would enhance aspen habitats, thin understory ingrowth, and improve forest resiliency by reducing the risk of stand replacement fire and beetle infestation. Treatments would include salvage logging, commercial thinning, fuels reduction (thinning, piling, burning), and removal of encroaching conifers within aspen clones and bunchgrass/sagebrush communities. To facilitate timber harvest and log hauling, approximately 3.3 miles of road reconstruction and 0.7 miles of new road construction would be needed.
The EA may be obtained by mail from Region 2 FWP, 3201 Spurgin Rd., Missoula 59804; by phoning 406-542-5540; by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; or by viewing FWP’s Internet website http://fwp.mt.gov (“News,” then “Recent Public Notices,” beginning April 13). Comments may be made on FWP’s website or may be directed to Sharon Rose at the mail or email addresses above. Comments must be received by FWP no later than May 14, 2018.
