On Monday, the Langdon City Commissioners conducted their first meeting of September with a lengthy agenda. During the department reports, all reported business as usual. After the city auditor’s report, Andrew Aakre of Moore Engineering gave the commissioners an update on the status of the phase one and two street projects.

“By the end of the week, Quam Construction should be through with the underground work in town,” Aakre said. The company will also replace several hundred feet of curbing and gutters that were poured/formed incorrectly on 12th Avenue.
On a more positive note, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved a grant of $2,169,000 and a loan for $2,731,000 to the city of Langdon for Phase 2 construction of the sewer, water, storm water improvements project. Bids will be taken in February.
Under new business, several citizens spoke with the Commission about lots that the City of Langdon owns on 15th Avenue. One lot will be offered for sale, and bids will be taken at a later date. Shannon Duerr of the Job Development Authority requested and was approved $2008 for the Rendezvous Region Tourism Council as a part of a marketing grant.
