County tables joint power agreement with city again

Ward County Commissioners tabled the joint powers agreement with the City of Minot over home demolition responsibilities in the city’s extra-terretorial area for the second time at their meeting Tuesday morning.

This time commissioners are hoping that Ward County State’s Attorney Rozanna Larson can redraft portions of the agreement to be more clear in the extent and direction of certain payment responsibilities. The current draft was written by John P. Van Grinsven III, the former attorney for the city.
