Commissioners Approve RMC Meals Delivery, Fairgrounds Hydrant

The Roosevelt County Commissioners approved a renewal of a contract with Roosevelt Medical Center on Tuesday, June 30, for the purchase and delivery of 700 daily Meals On Wheels meals in the Culbertson area at a cost of $7.30 per meal and $2 delivery.
The approval came one week after the commissioners approved a contract with Northeast Montana Health Services for the purchase and delivery of 2,000 Meals On Wheels meals in Wolf Point and 100 in Poplar at $12 per meal and $2.50 for each delivery.
In other business, a woman from Culbertson who said she is a volunteer for the fair board asked the commissioners for help to stop what she called slander posted on Facebook against her related to her duties as a fair volunteer. She said she has volunteered for the fair for almost 50 years.
No action was taken.
In another matter, the commissioners voted to move a fire hydrant at the fairgrounds in Culbertson into the parking lot at county expense because it is a safety issue.
The commissioners also established the courthouse in Wolf Point and the county building in Culbertson as locations for posting public notices.
