Should Minot's historic water fountain, gifted to the city in 1910, be moved when the downtown area is redesigned?

  1. Yes, away from downtown
  2. Somewhere else downtown
  3. Leave it as is

whatever costs the taxpayer the most will be their decision. after all, it's only tax dollars and we all know it's way too cheap living here already.

That is a miss leading statistic.....I believe that most of that money goes to farmers through the farm program, so in reality it goes to a small percentage of the population.

There are two military bases, 4 Indian Reservations, NG, and farmers plus others who receive federal money. Then add the many airports that are subsidized by the feds including Jamestown airport because it can't sustain itself, but the tax money that these folks are referring to is our own city sales tax and property tax. The fountain should stay where it is. The city could build a huge dome over downtown to protect the fountain from the elements and so everyone could walk from one new downtown park to the next.

There's a historic water fountain in downtown Minot? Where is it located? Who gifted it?

It is located on the corner in front of the old B&B Drug store. If memory serves me, the pharmacist, Mr. Berg, had it refurbished and set up during last downtown redo. Well maybe not the latest one, but the one when they made main street snake like. That lasted only a few years.!! I don't remember who gifted it originally. I was but a wee young thing back then!!;-)

"It's very clear that any and all ND complaints about taxes are absurd."

Should this statement be...

a) taken seriously?

b) considered as made by an outsider to this state?

c) chalked up to somebody's continual unhappiness about all things North Dakotan?

d) relieved from its suffering?

e) all of the above?
