MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A Minot business will be paying for its paving mistake.

The Minot City Council voted to deny a request from Capital RV for permission to cover a boulevard with recycled asphalt. The business had already done the work, not realizing it violated city ordinance.

City staff noticed the changes in the boulevard and contacted the company in July. The city doesn't allow paving over boulevards because the area is a right-of-way for the city. Staff also had concerns about appearance.

The Minot Daily News says the council voted to require Capital RV to tear out up to 400 feet of 9-foot-wide paving.
