PUBLIC NOTICE AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING The City of Leeds plans to submit two (2) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) applications to the State of North Dakota, Division of Community Services (DCS). CDBG funds are intended to provide decent housing, suitable living environments and economic opportunities, principally for very low and low income persons through rehabilitation and preservation, economic/job development and public facilities improvements. It is estimated that $6,000,000 will be available statewide for the "Small Cities" CDBG program projects.

The applications being considered will request $46,200 for the rehabilitation of Parkview Apartments and $42,000 for the replacement of city water meters. It is estimated that approximately 100% of the funds would benefit very low and low income persons. Permanent involuntary displacement of neighborhood persons or businesses is not anticipated. Should it later become necessary to consider such displacement, alternatives will be examined to minimize the displacement. If no feasible alternatives exist, required/reasonable benefits will be provided to those displaced to mitigate adverse effects and hardships. Any very low and low income housing which is demolished or converted will be replaced. A public hearing will be held at 9 a.m.

June 9, 2009 at the Leeds City Office, 221 Main St. West, Leeds, ND to obtain views and questions related to:

The proposed CDBG applications are for the rehabilitation of Parkview Apartments and the replacement of city water meters.

• Community development and housing needs, including the needs of very low and low income persons, as well as other needs in the community that might be addressed through the CDBG program, and • The performance of the City of Leeds in carrying out its community development responsibilities.

Written comments are also welcomed and must be received by June 9, 2009 at PO Box 651, Devils Lake, ND. Oral and written comments will be considered in deciding whether to submit an application for the proposed project. Written summary information will be available from the Leeds Auditor’s Office on June 3, 2009 until June 9, 2009 on any CDBG application the City of Leeds intends to submit to the state. A copy of the application as submitted to the state will be available for public review at North Central Planning Council after June 9, 2009.

Information and records regarding the City of Leeds proposed and past use of CDBG funds are available at North Central Planning Council during regular office hours. Advance notice is requested. If special accommodations are needed, please notify so that appropriate aids can be made available.

Excess Mill Levy


NOTICE OF SPECIAL ELECTION

West Bay Township

Benson County, ND

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on June 17, 2009 at the polling place of the Minnewaukan Senior Citizen Community Center in the Township of West Bay, County of Benson, an election will be held in which the following question shall be submitted to the electors of West Bay Township:

Shall West Bay Township levy taxes for a five-year period commencing in 2009, which shall exceed the legal limit by not more than $2,602.42, so that the taxes levied, instead of being $5,204.84, which is the limit authorized by law for the tax year 2008, shall be approximately $7,807.20? This excess levy shall be contingent on the Benson County Board of Commissioners waiving any interest accruing from and after January 1, 2009 on the bill owed to the Benson County Highway Department which is 365 days past due as of December 31, 2008. All funds received by the township from this levy shall first be used for the purpose of paying off the past due amount to the Benson County Highway Department.

Any remaining funds shall be used to pay other expenses of the township as needed.

( ) Yes or ( ) No.

BE IT KNOWN that the total income of West Bay Township from the first day of January 2008 to the last day of December 2008 was $10,900.09 and that the total warrants issued for said period amounted to $6,450.06.

BE IT FURTHER KNOWN that the expected

expenditures for each year of the five-year period commencing in 2009 are roughly equivalent to the $14,308.00 spent in 2006.

BE IT FURTHER KNOWN that the current tax levy of

18 mills, which produced $5,204.84 in income in 2008, is the legal maximum, but that a 100 percent excess levy of the basic legal limitation is authorized for a five-year period. If 60 percent of the qualified electors shall approve the above-stated question, the levy shall be increased an additional 9 (nine) mills upon each dollar of taxable valuation, which increase would have produced $2,602.42 in additional income at 2008 valuations.

BE IT FURTHER KNOWN that said election will be opened at 10 a.m. and will continue open until 12 noon in said West Bay Township.
