Langdon City Commissioners Meeting

The Langdon City Commissioners met this past Monday and had a lot to discuss.


Posted on 8/30/14

The commissioners reviewed Cody Schlittenhard’s information that he had gained concerning aerial spraying for mosquitoes. The company uses GPS  to track acreage and has all the permits filed.

The annexation of the Southview addition won’t be finalized  until a public meeting is held on October 13. Notices will be sent out to the land owners in the annexation. Cameron Sillers hopes to have this all completed by Thanksgiving.

Sillers also made a suggestion that a new city ordinance be put in place concerning streets. The suggestion is that all new streets  be drawn or approved by a licensed engineer to create uniformity and ensure all streets are to code.

The commissioners are still trying to contact Wells Fargo in regards to the Messner house on 5th Street. It also appears that someone has begun caring for the property.

When Gary Bimler went through the house with a Health Inspector, new locks were found to be in place on the doors, power throughout the house, and a dehumidifier in the basement.

The commissioners discussed other steps that could be taken to resolve the issue of the house. In the meantime, the city will continue to make every effort to contact Wells Fargo in regards to the property.
