Flood controversy weighs heavily on City Council

Mayor Darrell Bjerke used his section of Monday night’s Beulah City Council meeting agenda to express his displeasure with the activities of the group of south side residents who are agitating for an increased response to flooding problems in that part of Beulah.

Bjerke was upset about comments from the group in the days following a meeting with officials of the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services, Gen. Terry Robinson, Col. Michael Hall and Hazard Mitigation Specialist Ray Morrell. Bjerke said he was tired of accusations that the city had not taken the proper steps to seek mitigation assistance for the city in the weeks and months following last spring’s floods.
