Red River Valley officials want to make sure Gov. Mark Dayton is fully informed and prepared to act on flood-related issues.
On Friday, six days after Dayton visited Moorhead and nearby areas, Clay County Commissioner Jon Evert and Moorhead Mayor Mark Voxland were in Daytonâ€™s Capitol office to provide the governor with another update. Nothing new they said, it was just to keep him informed.
Evert appeared to question the wisdom of Daytonâ€™s request for $3 million to build a ring dike around 129-population Georgetown, about 10 miles north of Moorhead.
â€œIs it worth it for that small of a town?â€ Evert asked.
