Wolf Point City Council Hires New Police Officer
Bill Juve attended the Wolf Point City Council meeting Aug. 21. He prepared a quit claim deed for the city to sign regarding a five foot section on land inside city limits that he would like to improve at a cost of $500.
Juve asked, “What needs to be done next to move forward?”
Mayor Chris Dschaak said Great Northern Development Corp. employees are asking for the property to be replatted. Dschaak said GNDC employees are unclear about whether or not the replatting is necessary.
