I am familiar with your letter dated Jan. 14, 2014 to Darrel Vanyo, warning Fargo’s Diversion Authority that this action may violate Minnesota law. After receiving your letter, Fargo-Moorhead’s Diversion Authority concocted an “independent utility” story.

Fargo Cass Diversion Authority Using Poor Judgement

Fargo Cass Diversion Authority Using Poor Judgement

Fargo leaders use poor judgement in wasting tax dollars to develop natural flood plain creating a new FEMA flood risk to the higher ground surrounding it.

Oddly, citing – “as designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers” is reminiscent to those – “as seen on T.V.” infomercials, wherein a misleading problem can be fixed with the latest and greatest huckster science – with the whole intent of getting into your wallet.

Competence, Ethics, Conflicts of Interest and Moral Turpitude

Maybe the players in this matter received bad legal advice, or maybe they’ve acted upon their own accord. What strikes me the most odd in all this…, is that it got by the ethical filters of all the parties involved.
