The commission heard from department heads, reviewed unfinished business and discussed new business.

Eighth Avenue was new on the agenda with discussion focused on opening up Eighth Avenue. Currently, the street is closed and ends in the southwest corner of the Leever’s parking lot. The suggestion entertained by the commission and is under review was to extend the street east past D&B Motors to end at the former Stables Restaurant.

The board also voted to proceed with a legal service agreement between Quentin Wenzel of Sillers, Laaveg & Wenzel Office in Langdon and Moore Engineering. The agreement covers the extra work required beyond normal services Wenzel provides as the Langdon City Attorney. The additional services are related to the city’s water and sewer project.

The city also started the biding process for crushing the cement located in the landfill. RTS Shearing, LLC from Jamestown, placed the winning bid.

Langdon City Auditor RoxAnne Hoffarth presented the preliminary city budget. The city commissioners did not accept the budget but decided to have one more meeting to discuss it and make some more revisions.

The board also discussed and approved building permits for city residents and businesses.
