The commissioners discussed the resolution to annex the Downs property into city limits. Langdon City Attorney Quentin Wenzel explained what had to occur prior to the city finalizing the annexation including the printing of a notice in the Cavalier County Republican and the holding of a hearing in April. The Commission approved the resolution with a roll call vote and asked Wenzel for an update on the Kakela resolution for annexation. Wenzel informed the Commission that the Kakela resolution was not quite ready for Commission review and approval.
Moore Engineering representative Andrew Aakre was present to give the commissioners updates on the progress of the Phase II project as well as the closing of the water supply project. Aakre explained that the USDA Rural Development recently had a change in some of their criteria but gave leeway to the Phase II application as the change was made after the submission of the project.
