Some residents in the town of Wolf Creek are looking to change their tiny hamlet north of Helena into a resort. Or, at least, they are hoping to set up a resort tax.
Wolf Creek area resident Pat Hunter said the community needs extra money to clean up groundwater.
“The people in Wolf Creek would not be asking for a resort tax if they weren’t faced with the burden of putting in a sewer system that, quite frankly, they can’t afford,” Hunter said.
Hunter predicts the three percent resort tax would earn the community about $30 thousand dollars a year.
