Bozeman -- Mayors from 60 Montana communities attended the second Montana Mayors' Academy held Feb. 1-3 on the campus of Montana State University.

The MSU Local Government Center and the Montana Municipal Insurance Authority conducted the academy to teach the mayors about governing roles and responsibilities as well as the legal limits of authority.
An additional 12 hours of instruction will be provided during the Montana Municipal Institute in Billings during the second week in May. Mayors that complete both courses of instruction will receive a certificate of completion of instruction from the Local Government Center.
