Flasher North Dakota is home is just over 200 people, and they are due for many improvements.
The City Commission found a way around putting these costs on the residents, by reaching out to the Lewis and Clark Community Development Center in Mandan.
Last year the city was awarded a grant of 69,000 dollars to fix their sewer system. They received another 186,000 dollars this year to finish up the project.
This summer they are working to replace manhole covers around town, and to fix a couple fire hydrants.
Flasher Commission President Tamara Bartz says, “We were also awarded this year, another grant for working out on our lift station for 10,818 dollars, and that’s going to put in a permanent emergency generator down at our lift station. So then when the power gets out here, residents don’t have to worry about the sewer being backed up.”
The City also received another 26,000 dollars to get their water tower up to OSHA standards. Flasher City Commission plans to have this completed by the end of the summer.
