Lockwood Problems Still Arise

Posted: Updated:
LOCKWOOD, Mont. -

Lockwood residents gather tonight to discuss some concerns about the city growth, but it appears some of those problems still remain unsolved.

The Lockwood Steering Committee Chair, Don Reed said, "Whatever's on people minds is what were trying to address and that's what the setup is. They ask people so it's ground up. Is what it comes to."

Mary Hurt, a Lockwood Resident said, "I would love a sewer haha. Like to flush my toilet hahaha."

Members of the Lockwood community voiced their concerns at the meeting. City managers say 8,000 residents are worried about the lack of sidewalks, streetlights, a sewer system and a high school.

Steering Committee organizers say it's important for the changes to be made.

The second meeting will take place at the Lockwood Eileen Johnson Middle School commons at 7.

Lockwood leaders say the session will be a team summary from the residents' concerns.

Everyone in the community is invited to attend.
