Defending Richland and Wilkin counties July 17th, 2014

It’s unfair and unethical to force family farmers, homeowners and communities to pursue their own costly legal recourse to Fargo’s development project. But then again, maybe we’re expecting too much of our neighbors and elected leaders.

The lowest existing ground level in the new portion of Oxbow, ND requires a 22.5 foot high levee because it is 10 feet lower than the lowest residential property along Schnell drive in Oxbow, ND.

Fargo Diversion Authority leaders claim opposition to their wealth transfer scheme is being orchestrated by a couple of counties that are “insignificantly inconvenienced”.
