Minot City Council approves two diversion proposalsMINOT, N.D. — The Minot City Council has approved a flood protection plan for the Souris River that last year swamped more than 4,000 homes and businesses and forced thousands of people to evacuate.
The council on Tuesday voted in favor of two diversion proposals. A public hearing was held before the group made its decision.
The Minot Daily News says (http://bit.ly/yCOksM ) the move will allow engineers to complete a preliminary draft of the plan, which is due on Feb. 29.
