MAYVILLE, N.D. (AP) — The board of directors for a Mayville grain elevator has voted to install a dust filtering system before expanding, after residents organized and hired attorneys who threatened legal action.

The Mayport Farmers Co-op Elevator plans to build two more storage silos. That worries residents who say they have dealt with troublesome dust since the co-op added two silos and a grain dryer in 2006.

Mavyille Clean Air Campaign spokesman Jeff Bachmeier tells the Grand Forks Herald that he is satisfied with the elevator's decision.
