       Summer is here and that means longer days and warmer weather giving way to opportunities sprouting up around town. At the BLDC, we believe that we are a part of a community packed full of possibilities and endless potential that is just waiting to flourish. We have been working with various companies and individuals to ensure continued success in our communities workforce throughout the year. We are excited to share that Butte will receive a grant on behalf of Montana Precision Products, LLC, which estimates it will create 54 jobs and will be reimbursed up to $361,800. Grant funds will be used to purchase equipment, construction materials and for wage reimbursement.

 

     The Fly Butte organization is hosting the launch party for the “2019 Fly Butte Initiative” which gives the public a chance to get more information on the Minimum Flight Guarantee in a community-wide goal for bringing additional flights to Butte. Fly Butte is an organization comprised of BLDC, Headwaters RC&D, Butte Chamber of Commerce, Butte CVB and the City-County of Butte Silver-Bow. The “Flight Night & Bites” launch party is scheduled for Thursday, June 20th at 5:30pm at the Bert Mooney Airport.

 

     We welcome the opportunity for our local businesses to receive more visitors into Butte, but also the ability to diversify the travel options for our community. After the terminal expansion and upgrades to the Bert Mooney Airport, we are excited about becoming Montana’s next major city to enter into an MRG process that will showcase our airport and community to travelers from even more destinations.

 

    In the months to come, we will continue to work hard for our great community and help cultivate our local economy so we all can grow together and all thrive on the richest hill.

 

Thank you,

Joe Willauer

 
The public is invited to attend “Flight Night & Bites” on June 20th for a kick-off event at 5:30 p.m. at the Bert Mooney Airport. Fly Butte will be sharing information regarding the initiative including the Minimum Flight Guarantee in a community-wide goal for bringing additional flights into Butte. This event will also serve as the first opportunity to participate in the capital campaign fundraiser and will be accepting proceeds towards the flight guarantee by personal or corporate donor contributions.

Additional flights to and from Butte require Minimum Revenue Guarantee Contracts (MRG). MRGs are a tool for communities to partner with airlines in sharing the risk of adding flights in new, untested markets. Funds are only transferred to the airline when flights under-perform and do not cover costs.

We are grateful to have been a part of assisting Montana Precision Products in these added jobs and investments into the community!

Last week, Governor Steve Bullock announced more than $1.3 million in economic development grant awards that will support the creation of up to 195 jobs at growing businesses in Montana.

“When our businesses thrive, our communities and the hard-working Montanans who live and work there have new opportunities to grow as well,” said Governor Bullock. “These grants will invest in Montana’s economy by growing business and the jobs that support those businesses.”

Funds will be awarded through two programs at the Department of Commerce: the Big Sky Economic Development Trust Fund (BSTF) and the Primary Sector Workforce Training Grant (WTG). The competitive reimbursement grant programs work in concert to create and train for good-paying jobs.

Butte-Silver Bow County will receive a grant on behalf of Montana Precision Products, LLC, which estimates it will create 54 jobs and will be reimbursed up to $361,800. Grant funds will be used to purchase equipment and construction materials and for wage reimbursement. Montana Precision Products, LLC produces small structural castings and tube and duct assemblies.
