Notice of meeting.


The Flathead Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) will meet in Kalispell, Montana. The committee is authorized under the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act (the Act) and operates in compliance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act.

a. The implementation of a new recreation fee at specific recreation fee site;

b. The implementation of a fee increase at an existing recreation fee;

c. The implementation or elimination of noncommercial, individual special recreation permit fees;

d. The elimination of a recreation fee; and,

e. The expansion or limitation of the recreation fee program.
