Butte-Silver Bow wants public feedback on proposed amendment
BUTTE, Mont. -

Butte-Silver Bow is asking for your comments about a proposed amendment to the Historic Preservation Ordinance.

The amendment would give the historic preservation officer the authority to demolish nonhistoric primary buildings, in and outside the historic district.

Right now, Preservation Officer Jim Jarvis must ask the preservation board for approval before demolition.

Jarvis told us the amendment would help him keep up with the demands of his job.
