Montana town cuts hours, considers bankruptcy
BROWNING, Mont. (AP) — A northwestern Montana town has cut back its operating hours and is considering filing for bankruptcy after running short on funds.
Browning is a town of about 1,000 people on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. Officials blame its financial problems on a dispute with the Blackfeet Nation over management of a water utility that serves the town.
But Blackfeet leaders contend the town owes the tribe money and must accept responsibility for its poor fiscal management.
