Local Issues Committee
When a municipality investigates new fees and policies that impact the building industry, this committee is right there on the ground level making sure that our industry is not negatively impacted. Because of these partnerships, the HBA of Billings is proactive instead of reactive when it comes to local issues that impact all of us. This committee meets with City of Billings officials every month to discuss opportunities.
For more information regarding this committee, please contact the HBA office.
Please remember that all HBA members are welcome to attend the Local Issues meeting (2nd Tuesday of the Month @ 2:00 PM @ Billings Parmly Library – 4th Floor). This is a great opportunity to learn about new happening in the City of Billings and Yellowstone County and discuss issues that affect your business. I hope you will join us.
