Fargo Diversion Authority spent another $5,696,856.75 from May 31, 2017 to June 30, 2017. Nearly 24 percent of the original projected cost. The Fargo Diversion Authority has pumped over $94.5 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.
This is really an incestuous story of participants that “wear many hats” in a quasi-state of conflict of interest and treat the hats like some sort of split personality in a feigned attempt to justify their actions.
FM Diversion proponents uses FAKE NEWS to promote misleading project talking points.
When a public officer, such as Moorhead’s Mayor or County Commissioner, does something in their official capacity knowing that their conduct violates Minnesota law, they may be committing another crime that is punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of $3,000.00. MN Statute 609.43. Shouldn’t there be an investigation by an independent prosecutor and, if warranted, criminal prosecutions?

Fargo Diversion Authority spent another $5,754,258.85 from February 28, 2017 to March 31, 2017. Nearly 22.55 percent of the original projected cost and no genuine start on the actual main project. The Fargo Diversion Authority has pumped over $92.2 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 with buyouts running to 200-900 perecent…, courtesy of state and local taxpayers.
Not content with what they already have, Oxbow’s lawyer stood up in Federal Court last month and argued that Oxbow is the victim. Apparently the federal injunction that stopped the construction on the ring dike is making it difficult for the private Oxbow Country Club to finish their golf course re-design.
So what did the taxpayer get for their $78.5+ million spent thus far?

Even worse is the taxation without representation of any future generation that will be denied their right to accept or reject the tax obligation being imposed upon the yet un-born generations.
