Salish Kootenai Tribal Council says 'no' to payments in lieu of taxes


MISSOULA, Mont. - For weeks, Lake County commissioners and Polson schools pressed the Confederated Salish Kootenai Tribal Council for answers -- would the tribes make up for lost revenue from the sale of the former Kerr Dam? Thursday morning, in a meeting with the tribal council, they got an answer.

There will be no payment in lieu of taxes. The $1.2 million that would have gone to public schools and county government operations will have to come from other sources.
