Listening Session Regarding Hour Change at Opheim Port
May 1, 2019
Customs and Border Protection has announced they will hold listening sessions in Montana about its efforts to reduce operations at the Morgan, Opheim, Raymond and Scobey ports of entry. Another listening session has been planned to discuss the Opheim port of entry hours on Friday, May 3, starting at 5 p.m., at the Glasgow Senior Citizens Center, 328 4th Street S., Glasgow.
Customs and Border Protection had held a town hall on April 2 at the Glasgow Senior Citizens Center in order to discuss removing the extended summer hours at the Opheim Morgan and Scobey ports of entry, as well as discuss reducing the hours at the Raymond Port. After the meeting, the Customs and Border Protection announced they would reduce the hours of operation at POE Raymond from 24 to 18 hours a day, and then less than a week later, reversed their decision and reinstated 24-hour operations.
As of press time, the decision to extend into summer hours at Opheim POE have not been made, however if any changes do occur they would be effective June 1.
