Interest yes famous for all federal entities....I think anybody who made repairs by themselves and received no help from anybody should get this money back as some of these people were senior citizens who had limited income and were over the mark because they had disabled people living with sad....just give them the*****money....

The way I see it the Minot people paid for flood protection much like we all pay for insurance. We don't let the insurance company change our policy after we have had an accident do we?

film.. I'm pretty sure Minot had a flood control plan before the flood. It wasn't a foolproof plan, accent the word fool, but it was their plan. They should have to pay out in accordance to the existing plan not wait to draw up new plans after the disaster. That don't sound very fair or legal to me. Reminds me of the TV ad where the grocery checkout person is an auctioneer and starts to auction off the customers food to the next customers in!!!

I'm pretty sure the 11 months refers to how long it took between the time of the flood until a flood control plan was drawn up. I'm no engineer, but I think 11 months to design for a project that's going to take ten years to build and cost nearly three quarters of a billion dollars doesn't seem like too big of a stretch. Grand Forks' flood control took the same amount of time to plan and build after their flood.

"Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., wrote HUD secretary Shaun Donovan on Thursday to support the city's request to extend the eligibility period. He noted the city's action on a flood project footprint didn't come until 11 months after the flood, delaying the decision of many residents about whether to rebuild."

What was the city waiting for.... for 11 months? Interest maybe... Is there an answer?
