Mandan Residents pack City Hall over three proposed street improvement projects.
The City Commission votes to bar one project-- and continue ahead with two others.
More than half of residents in one neighborhood voted "no" to pay for improvements in their area.
Over 50 percent protest is needed to stop the project.
Discussions over improvements to the Roughriders area and Industrial Park however will continue.
Property owners show up in force tonight to voice their opinions.
They would be responsible for paying for the improvements-- not residents of the entire city.
One man who lives in the Roughrider neighborhood shared his concerns over the added cost of street lights.
The Commission has since taken the street light option out of the project.
The estimated average cost for Roughriders residents is over nine thousand dollars over 15 years.
