Clay County Commissioners say they are on-track to buying out 19 homes before next spring. Those homes are the first of 31 that will eventually be bought out in Crestwood, just south of Moorhead. Commissioners laid down rules of how to determine which homes are offered a buyout first. Many of those properties don't flood, but buyouts are needed because land in their yard is sloping into the river. The County will spend around $6 million for buyouts.
