Annexation plan takes on new life

Annexation plan takes on new life

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
A group of patrons from the Ryder area whose property is in the Lewis & Clark School District are going back to plead their case before county and state officials. They would like their property annexed to the Max School District from the Lewis & Clark District.
A previous effort was approved at the county level a year ago, but was denied at the state level by the North Dakota State Board of Public Education in Bismarck.
A public hearing will be before the Ward and McLean County School District Reorganization Committees Wednesday, April 24, at 1 p.m. in the commissioners’ chambers, Ward County Courthouse, Minot.
The purpose of the meeting, like it was a year ago, will be to consider a petition for annexing a territory to Max School District from Lewis & Clark School District. Lewis & Clark School District is located primarily in Ward County and Max School District is located primarily in McLean County.
