County nixes city’s request for funding

April 18, 2012

The Barnes County Commission voted unanimously to deny a request from Valley City Mayor Bob Werkhoven for funds to help cover the cost of the Ninth Avenue Northwest project in the city.

Werkhoven had requested $125,000 from the county’s Farm to Market Fund to cover the road’s repair and other work, but commissioners said funding was already spread too thin.

Barnes County Roads Superintendent Kerry Johnson and State’s Attorney Lee Grossman also urged the commission to deny the city’s request.
