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.
Fargo Diversion Authority spent another $ 261,133.06 from January 31, 2017 to February 28, 2017. 1/4.45 th (22.54 percent) of the original projected cost and no genuine start on the actual main project. The Fargo Diversion Authority has pumped over $92.1 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.
So what did the taxpayer get for their $78.5+ million spent thus far?
Given that we were not consulted as part of this process and further that we are not able to see the basis for your determination, I believe it is essential to be on the record directly with you regarding the real and significant regulatory issues that are outstanding in Minnesota concerning the proposed Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Project.

It’s heartbreaking that Fargo’s intimidation extends to the Attorney General’s office. Whether Stenehjem’s political opportunism made him seek the support of Fargo’s political bullies, or whether he truly believes quick-take eminent domain is a useful tool of government is hard to say.
A $2.69 million home, with ZERO money down (county taxpayer owned), ZERO percent interest (county taxpayer owned) and ZERO property taxes (county taxpayer funded) on a 30 year loan would cost any other buyer $7,472.00 per month.

Typical and pervasive FMDA cult rhetoric. Merchants of fear, whose agenda is to galvanize weak-minded people, then prey on their fears of the “next big one” or “mandatory flood insurance”.
Prognosticate future weather conditions years, if not decades into the future. Yet, repeatedly miss short-term flood forecasts by several feet and ignore flaws in methods and flood prophecies.
