BOZEMAN, Mont. -

The Gallatin County Commission signed off bonds that will go towards paying their share of building the Belgrade Interchange, Tuesday.
     
Gallatin County is responsible for paying $2 million of the $37 million project.
     
The payments are budgeted so as not to raise taxes.
     
County Commissioners say bonds are easier than borrowing from a bank, plus rates are low.

"This particular component is a small part of the big picture but it's something that we needed to do and budgeted for it and I think it's appropriate thing to do to benefit the county and what the project is all about," says Gallatin County Commissioner Steve White.

Belgrade is responsible for $2 million of the project and the airport will pay $3 million.
