Council of Commissioners


The council meets in public session generally four times per month. The first and third weeks are Regular meetings while the second and fourth are Committee of the Whole meetings. In addition, there are six standing committees which meet at various times during each month. Council meetings are held in the Council Chamber on the third floor of the Butte-Silver Bow Courthouse (Room 312) and are open to the public.For upcoming meetings, download the entire 2018 Council Meeting Schedule or refer to the Council web calendar.

How Citizens Can Submit Items for the Council of Commissioners’ Agenda

The public can submit an item for the Council’s agenda using one of the methods below:

If you are unsure who your Council Commissioner is, address your letter to:  Council of Commissioners, 155 W. Granite St. Rm. 102, Butte, MT 59701; or

  • Hand deliver a letter to either the Council Secretary (Room 102 of the Courthouse) or the Clerk and Recorder’s Office (Room 208 of the Courthouse). 

In your letter, briefly describe the action you would like Council to take.  Include your address (so we can determine who your commissioner is) and your daytime phone number (so we can contact you if we have questions).  Don’t forget to sign your letter!

Items for the agenda are acted on during a Regular Meeting.  A regular meeting happens the first and third Wednesday of each month.  For your item to be on the agenda, we must receive your letter no later than 2:00 p.m. the Friday before the meeting (allow 4 business days when mailing through postal delivery). 

If you have any questions, please contact the Council Secretary at 497-6219 or email
