The Governors Task Force was intended to explore potential alternatives and compromise rather than Fargo’s attempt to re-litigate the project that received a Prelimary Injunction.
Fargo Diversion Authority spent another $1,085,305.57 from September 30, 2017 to October 31, 2017. Over 26.1 percent of the original projected cost. The Fargo Diversion Authority has pumped over $109.2 million into OHB ring-dike-levee and private country club, which provides ZERO FLOOD PROTECTION BENEFIT TO FARGO, all courtesy of state and local taxpayers. With unfinished internal flood protection projects the Fargo Diversion Authority continues to pump millions into the non-flood prone OHB ring-dike-levee and private Oxbow Country Club, courtesy of state and local taxpayers.
Oxbow, ND Park expected to top $621 thousand in taxpayer dollars.
When the Vice Chair of the Diversion Authority, Del Rae Williams, Governor Burgum, sit around that table – they are doing so without conceding MN’s right permit this project.
Then again…, this is the rantings and ravings of a mediocre talk show host pandering to a dwindling peanut gallery on parsed information provided to him by the very proponents being paid directly or indirectly to develop the project.

WRRDA 2014 was so stuffed full of pet projects that of the 514 votes cast between the house and senate, only 11 dissented. It’s not like the entire U.S. Congress took a hard look at the FMDA project and considered it worthy.
“How in the world did this get this far?” ~ With incompetent leadership selling a development project disguised as flood control.
Imperial Fargo and elite developers would not accept permanent internal flood protection for the city that existed. It didn’t fit their land grab agenda, they got greedy…, they wanted more. Even if MORE, meant placing the existing city in harms way and property owners in the cross-hairs of mandatory FEMA flood insurance.
So many imbeciles, drenched with arrogance, playing a high stakes games to place Fargo at greater risk – for an unnecessary project, unjust profit and congressional funding that may never come.
