The Cascade County Commissioners are concerned about a high utility bill at Montana ExpoPark.

According to Commissioner Jane Weber, they have found an unusually high water bill for the last nine months.

She said that something is leaking somewhere on the property but they are not quite sure where.

Weber said one of the issues is that they do not have blueprints of ExpoPark utilities. They are trying to map out the property as they fix the water line break.

"When we dig those up to repair them, we have been GISing where those lines are. What we are seeing is that they are branching off in places but we just do not know exactly where they lead to," Weber said. "In order for us to do something in an efficient way and to be doing it in the right way, we need to know where everything is underground."

The County has teamed with the Tourism Business Improvement District and applied for a grant through the Economic Development Authority to help map out the blueprints.

They will learn if they received the grant later this month.
