  1. Minutes
    Motion made by Doerk, seconded by Fisher to approve January, 2004 minutes. Approved 7-0 Hutchinson stated that the $20,000 for Tower Rock is not correct in that the grant was not just for Tower Rock.

  3. Status Report
    1. National. No report.
    2. State. Weber and Kubick attended the State meeting. Kubick expressed concern that some of the tribes were excluded from receiving their O&M money because their paperwork was not complete. Our Commission will receive $2000 O&M grant. Weber reported that the Center will offer guide training this spring beginning May 10th. $5000 of PPL contributions will be given to our Commission for the Tower Rock project – there may also be additional funding up to $13,000 available.

  4. Old Business
    1. Hutchinson reported the next step in trying to get something done at Tower Rock is to attend Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks public meetings.
    2. Kubick stated he would like to ask each governing entity to contribute money for the Signature Event. This money could be used as a match to request money from the legislature.

  5. Communications
    1. Communication received as noted in the agenda

    1. Hutchinson reported that there were 12 sites for signage identified in southern Cascade County. Kubick offered our support, especially for Tower Rock. Hutchinson also extended a “standing” invitation to meet with the Reaching the Rockies Chapter.
