Social distancing, face coverings and sanitizing protocols are in place. Our ability to begin reopening is a direct result of the hard work we have all done here and across the County. We thank you all for working together as we carefully and thoughtfully move forward and continue doing our best to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Important Reminders: Regular handwashing with soap and water, keeping hands away from face, and cleaning communally touched surfaces such as keyboards, door knobs, light switches, phones, etc. is the best defense against getting viruses. The City of Belgrade will continue working closely with Gallatin County Emergency Services and the Gallatin County Health Department as we consider local needs in the coming weeks. Gallatin County Health has directed that we can get the most up-to-date information by visiting the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Service's (DPPHS). They have a dedicated page for updates on the Novel Coronavirus.

PLEASE NOTE: One of the effects people are experiencing associated with the COVID-19 is a shortage of toilet paper. This can increase the likelihood of other materials being flushed down the drain. These materials include un-flushable products such as paper towels, diapers, tissues, "flushable wipes", and napkins. These items are not biodegradable and cause harm to the waste water collection system and treatment facilities. In an effort to decrease the likelihood of sewer backups and treatment issues, please do not flush any of the above listed, or anything similar, down the drain. Thank you. ~ Steve Klotz, Director of Public Works

The Triangle Community Plan including Belgrade, Bozeman and Gallating County was developed by the Planning Coordination Committee (PCC) in cooperation with community partners, local government departments and public input to establish policies in the Triangle to achieve the vision of: Regional coordination creates and maintains a coherent land use pattern that supports the needs of existing and future citizens and the desire to protect community character and amenities. Cooperation between jurisdictions supports development patterns that do not compromise the ability of municipalities to grow in the future or expand necessary infrastructure.


The new water and sewer rates for both residential and commercial meters go into effect January 2020.
