BISMARCK (AP) — Recovery from this year’s Missouri River flooding seems to at least be in the planning stage in Bismarck.
The Bismarck Tribune reported that the public works department will ask the city commission on Tuesday to advertise for bids for a contractor to remove and dispose of some 3 million sandbags in the city’s jurisdiction.
Thursday will be D-Day in the city of Moorhead, Minn.
That’s “D” as in sandbag deployment, with the city planning to distribute filled bags to neighborhoods starting at 8 a.m.
The timetable could be moved up if the weather warms significantly and accelerates the melt, or it may be pushed back if cold temperatures settle in.
