Town of Browning warns residents bankruptcy or disincorporation possible


The Town of Browning posted a notice this week in the Glacier Reporter, warning residents that the Town will have to either declare bankruptcy or disincorporate over the longstanding conflict between the Town and the Blackfeet Tribe over control of the water and sewer system, as well as trash collection, within the town’s boundaries.

Referencing “multiple lawsuits” between the Town and Tribe, the notice points to a “substantial negative impact on the Town’s finances.” While the notice states the Town has cut corners to adjust, the pressure has “left the Town on the brink of financial collapse.”
