Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The Flood Diversion Authority has taken another step acquiring land in the Oxbow, Hickson and Bakke area.
Authority members went over updates with the ring levee Wednesday. They've just begun the appraisal process for buyout homes in the area, but want to make sure new, safe land for building is available before the buyouts happen.
Earlier today, the finance committee authorized purchases of additional properties, totaling $4.6 million.
Rodger Olson – Flood Diversion Authority: “Well, certainly the people who have their homes being appraised now are very willing to accept this process and really get on with their lives.”
Authority members may meet soon with the Home Builders Association, to address building demand due to buyouts.
