THE PONDERA ADVANTAGE
Pondera County is located in the heart of the Golden Triangle, an ideal location for value-added agriculture.  In addition to the rich agriculture and wide -open spaces there is the advantage of an easy commute to work.  Even a 60 -mile commute represents only a 50-minute drive through beautiful rural landscape that teems with deer, antelope and pheasants. Not to mention that Montana has no sales tax.

The Pondera Regional Port Authority was created (2004) to stimulate and develop commerce, create opportunities for employment, and work towards the advancement of general welfare and prosperity within Pondera County.

Working in cooperation with the City of Conrad, the Town of Valier, and Pondera County, the Port Authority is available for business technical advice, business relocation and expansion assistance, and financial assistance. The entire county has HUB zone status, so there is strategic business advantage in bidding on government contracts.
