Bullying, Suicide Prevention at Next Council Meeting


SEELEY LAKE - Next Monday, Jan. 9, the Seeley Lake Community Council meeting promises an ambitious agenda.

Sheriff Deputy Mike Sunderland will talk about the office’s “Say Something” project, which seeks to address bullying, its devastating impacts and how it relates to teenage suicide.

Ben Schmidt, Missoula County Air Quality Specialist, will address air quality in Seeley Lake and how it could be improved further.

Linda Howard of Missoula Aging Services, who shares an office with the Seeley Lake Community Foundation in the Bison and Bear Center, will explain the many free services that are available to (not only) the older population.

Anne Beach, Executive Director of the Community Foundation, will preview the local shuttle service that is expected to launch in February. Plans are for weekly rides to Missoula and three days of transportation around Seeley.

Mike Hopkins, our new Montana House Representative, has been invited. He intends to be at the meeting if he can adjust a scheduling conflict. Hopkins wants to hear priorities from the Seeley Lake community for this year’s legislative session.

Finally, the council will consider a resolution that would condemn hate and anti-Semitism in response to recent events in Whitefish, Missoula and elsewhere.

Like always, there will be an opportunity for public comments on non-agenda items.

The informal part of the meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Seeley Lake Community Hall, 3248 Highway 83, with pizza and sodas.
