Richland commissioners still frustrated by slow state funding

A $200 million allocation to the North Dakota General Fund was forecast to be nearly completed as of December 2021. A $400 million allocation to the strategic investments and improvements fund had not begun as of that time. A $59.8 million allocation to municipal/county and township infrastructure funds had also not begun.

Prior to the Richland County Board of Commissioners’ Christmas break, they shared their frustrations with not receiving at least $10 million in revenue from the state “Prairie Dog” bill to finance infrastructure.

The status of three “buckets,” included in information shared at a Tuesday, Jan. 4 meeting, caught the commissioners’ attention.
