Where voters get to step in is determining how a big chunk of the more than $52 million price tag will be financed. To cover the bond payments, about 40 percent of the project will be paid by levying more property taxes or adding a new half-cent sales tax, Commissioner Kevin Campbell said Friday, Oct. 7.

FARGO — It's been 15 years since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were seared into the consciousness of everyone who witnessed them or followed the non-stop news coverage.
