Flood Recovery Public Meeting July 11, 2018

The first of many public meetings on the Recovery was held at the GFSS auditorium on Wednesday July 11, 2018

These meetings are to inform the public about what has been happening, what is planned and also to get feedback from the public.  A for instance was the appearance of Rockwool and an announcement of their offer of up to 20 bags of insulation free to those needing to rebuild. More info on that at www.rockwool.com/grandforks.

These are also the place to ask questions and put rumours to rest.
Such as this rumour: Is there an $80 million dollar cash infusion so the city can buy out affected home owners? No there is not.
or this question: Will those having to rebuild have to pay fees to the city for things such as licenses and re-connection of power? No the planners don’t want to add to your pain.

The full meeting can be watched below. IF time permits I’ll try to add  better links to parts of the meeting so you don’t have to wade though the whole thing to find the question or info you need to know. Like I do with city council pie. (but today I have shift to work so time does not permit this)

 

City Council Meeting June 25 2016

City Council only had one public meeting on June 25

For those watching the meeting it might have gotten a little confusing because they changed the order of agenda items at the start of the meeting right after they gave a big thank you to Samaritan’s Purse for all the work they put into helping out our community.
