Glacier County to again sign pact with Blackfeet Tribe

Browning, Montana (AP) 9-09

Glacier County officials will hold a public meeting to again sign a law enforcement pact with Blackfeet Tribe authorities after being threatened with legal action over the original agreement.

The agreement signed earlier during August gives county law enforcement arrest powers on the reservation and tribal officers similar authority in Glacier County. But, an attorney representing the Cut Bank Pioneer Press told Glacier officials they would take legal action unless the county voided the agreement within 10 days.

The attorney contends the agreement was signed illegally because there was no public meeting or public comment before it was signed.

Commissioner Mike DesRosier said this week officials would publicize a meeting 48 hours in advance, and sign the agreement again.
