ASUM To Hold Joint Meeting With Missoula City Council

Apr. 08, 2013

MISSOULA –

The Associated Students of The University of Montana invite all members of the campus community and public to attend the second-ever ASUM-Missoula City Council joint meeting.

Organized by UM students, the meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 8, in the Missoula City Council Chambers.

“We at ASUM are incredibly grateful that the Missoula City Council has been willing to engage so positively with students at the University,” ASUM Vice President Bryn Hagfors said. “Our University is inextricable with the community of Missoula, and this is a fantastic precedent and opportunity for the two bodies to again identify areas of common interest.”

The newly created Community Quality of Life Advisory Committee will be announced at the meeting tonight, and issues related to off-campus student housing will be the main agenda items. Of particular focus will be ASUM’s Theme-Housing Program.

“We look forward to a productive conversation,” ASUM President Zach Brown said. “It is great to have city and student leaders in the same room working toward the common goal of improved quality of life in Missoula.”

Public comment is welcome at the beginning of the meeting.
