It’s a big chunk of money for a small chunk of Hazen, and residents in that small chunk of town are hopeful that Hazen City Commission’s efforts to reduce their cost burden are successful.
Sandbagging is on the minds of city officials in the next few weeks, along with the imminent flood that might show up this month in Hazen and the surrounding area. City officials met March 2 for an informal meeting to discuss the necessary procedures and precautions to take before a flood occurs.
Those in attendance Feb. 23 at Hazen City Hall seemed to agree on two things: the sewer line running from Hazen’s Fifth Street to the alley between Third Street and Main Street is needed; and someone needs to pay for the project.
Despite above-normal temperatures in February shrinking snowbanks considerably along city streets and county roads, the National Weather Service recently increased its predicted chances of flooding along the Knife River and Spring Creek come this spring.
