Rural Improvement Districts (RIDs)
The Board of County Commissioners may create special improvement districts outside the limits of incorporated cities and towns. The districts may be created for the purpose of building, constructing, or maintaining a wide variety of improvements such as sidewalks, roads, water, sewer, storm drain and other utility infrastructure systems, parks and recreational facilities. A complete list of the type of improvements RIDs may be created for is found in 7-12-4102, MCA.
If you are interested in creating a RID, please call the County Planning Office at 447-8375. They can explain the RID creation process over the phone or setup a planning meeting with residents to discuss the type of improvements residents are interested in constructing and the costs associated with a RID.
