In a report released Monday by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, former Valley City Police Chief Dean Ross was cleared of accusations that he mismanaged several police department funds.
While the report did find that Ross's financial activities were "unusual, and likely not compliant with generally accepted accounting practices," it found nothing indicating his actions were criminal in nature.
"I am very pleased and gratified that the Bureau of Criminal Investigation report verifies what we've been saying all along and at the all the press conferences," said Ross of the findings.
Members of People to Save the Sheyenne and the Adhoc Downstream Group will hold a public meeting Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. at the Eagles Airie in Valley City.
The public is welcome to discuss the latest developments in combating Devils Lake flooding and how they affect Valley City and downstream communities.
