For the first time in 17 years, the Mayor of Missoula and the County Commissioners will not be delivering their 'State of Missoula' City and County message at an annual Chamber of Commerce event. I spoke with Mayor Jon Engen on the reasoning behind this change of plan to also involve the University of Montana in the presentation. That interview is attached.

Mayor Engen says no specific time or place has yet been determined for this joint address, but he expects it to be somewhere on the University of Montana campus where the public can attend.
