Are Moorhead leaders that bow to Fargo ND pressure serving their constituents responsibly? Should Moorhead abandon the Diversion Authority and focus on economic growth for Moorhead MN? Fargo has crossed the line that divides a neighbor in need from a demanding bully. Isn’t it time for Moorhead, Clay County and Minnesota to step back and take a strong look at Fargo’s agenda, and evaluate whether the clear lack of benefit justifies the impacts and costs to Minnesota residents.

Fargo has more than $200 million in cash from the state of North Dakota, and receives more than $30 million a year from sales tax, and yet they have to build a clay dike in front of their City Hall if the Valley gets a heavy rain.

As a result of the work done to protect Oxbow after the 2009 flood, the city is protected to levels in excess of that same 500-year event today.
