Zoning concerns

Lawrence Schmidt, Richmond, Wash.

How is it that the Minot city council and mayor feel they can ignore city zoning ordinances and allow First Western Bank to adversely affect the long-established family neighborhood known as the Brooklyn Addition?

Shame on the mayor, city council and First Western Bank.

The city-elected officials are sworn to serve the best interest of the people and not bypass laws for a business, no matter who is the owner.

I pray for the sake of Minot’s lifelong residents they hold the city officials and First Western Bank accountable for their actions. I am proud to have been born and raised in Minot and love my home town. Please hold the city officials accountable for their actions.
