The City of Minot is planning to use some of the remaining 2 million dollars of a Department of Housing and Urban development grant to help with blighted homes in the city.

Around 30 properties remain blighted or untouched since the 2011 flood.

The city hopes to implement an involuntary acquisition program to buy these properties.

“We’ve reached the point now that the intended uses of those grants have run the course for the programs and activities and their still some money left over, so we have the opportunity to repurpose the money and use it for other purposes,” said  disaster recovery program manager John Zakian.

The money funds will come from the first community development block grant that the city received in 2012.

The goal will be to acquire properties without need for legal action.
