Get rid of dead loops

James E. Harris, Minot

I totally agree with Duane Brekke about filling in the 1969 “flood left” dead river channels.

They have been an eyesore and a mosquito trap for years. They have been just waiting for one of our youth to drown in before something gets done. Put in storm sewer drains and fill them in. All the new construction and 2011 dike dirt would have filled them all in. Our city government can’t even deal with the 2011 flood, matter of fact leftover 1969 flood.
