The governors of Minnesota and North Dakota are setting up a 16-member task force to find a solution to the long-standing dispute over the Fargo-Moorhead flood diversion project. Governor Mark Dayton says he wants the issue resolved as soon as possible. He says, “I don’t want to see this drag on. I do want to give people a chance to be involved, to have it be collaborative, and have their input considered. I want the expertise that we’ll need on the financial side: How are we gonna pay for this? How are we gonna compensate people who are gonna be affected by it?” North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum says he expects the task force to focus on how to reduce the project’s impact on Minnesota and upstream landowners.
