MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A March 18 trial date has been set in Missoula’s effort to take over the water company that serves its residents.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1mc3wng) District Judge Karen Townsend set the trial date Monday during the first court hearing in City of Missoula vs. Mountain Water Co. and Carlyle Infrastructure Partners. She says she expects the trial to run for 10 days.

The city seeks to condemn the water utility and force the global investment firm to sell it to the city.

If the condemnation is approved, three appointed commissioners would determine a fair price.
