Minot, ND (WDAY TV) -- How about this for the oil impact. Minot is looking at adding 62 new city workers.

Officials say it's also partly due to last years major flood. The proposal includes 18 new police officers, 7 firefighters and more workers for the public works department.

This would mean higher property taxes on residents, adding about 600 dollars a year in taxes to a home worth 100-thousand dollars. Costs for water, sewer and garbage would rise 20 percent.

The City Council hears what the public thinks of the idea, that meeting is scheduled about for about a month from now.
