Dakota County Commissioners Association will be in this area on Monday.
Both hold a "president's tour" twice a summer.
Their first tour is Monday, June 24th and the two presidents will be in
Towner, Cavalier, and Pembina Counties.
North Dakota Association of Counties spokesman Jeff Eslinger says
it's a listening tour. He says the main purpose is to get officials out and
listen to issues from the local perspective as opposed to the state capitol one.
Eslinger says both presidents are from western North Dakota. The
North Dakota County Commissioners Association president is from Divide
County, in extreme northwestern North Dakota. The president of the North
Dakota Association of Counties is from McKenzie County and both enjoy
getting to parts of the state they don't see very often.
Eslinger says expect infrastructure to be a big topic of discussion
at the tour on Monday.
The President's Tour starts in Towner County, at the courthouse in
Cando at ten-am Monday morning. It then moves to Cavalier County, at the
courthouse in Langdon at one-15 in the afternoon, and concludes in Pembina
County, at the courthouse in Cavalier, about three-15.
The meetings are open to the public.
