Hillsboro, ND — The Hillsboro City Commission held their second monthly meeting on Monday night. As part of that meeting, the commission approved a resolution, which was introduced by Commissioner Levi Reese, urging people and businesses in the Hillsboro community to wear masks. While all the commissioners were in support of the resolution, President Terry Sando says he wished there would have been more communication with the business community prior to the meeting.

The commission also had some discussions about blighted and abandoned buildings around town. President Sando says they need to a better job in maintaining unoccupied facilities, citing difficulties he himself is having redeveloping a property in downtown Hillsboro.

The commission did approve a $2000 demolition grant for Goose River Investments LLC.

Also at this week’s meeting, Sando was happy to report that the city is getting healthy rebate of more than $100,000 from Missouri River Services.

And unfortunately, out at the Hillsboro Airport, Sando noted that the taxiway project will have to wait until spring to be finished.

The Hillsboro City Commission also approved of a John Deere frontend mower and snowblower. The next meeting is scheduled for November 2nd.
