Neighborhood VS. City Of Minot

Posted: Updated:

A Minot neighborhood and the city of Minot are locked in a legal dispute.

On Monday evening, city council member Dean Frantsvog was served paperwork which stated that residents of the Brooklyn Addition neighborhood are suing the city after a decision was made by the city council approving certain zoning variance requests by First Western Bank and Trust over on 9th Ave. SW and 3rd St. SW.

"We are asking those variance requests to be declared void. And, basically what the complainants want is a full and fair hearing before the appropriate body to properly consider those variance requests," says Allen C. Hoberg of Baumstark Braaten Law Partners.

"I think the most important thing here is to give us an opportunity to give the city an opportunity to look back on it and see what processes were taken. Give our city attorney time to look at it, to see if there was something that we did wrong. And, if so, see if there is anything we can do to fix it. If there was something we did wrong, we certainly will try and remedy that situation. If there was nothing we did wrong, we'll go forward," says Dean Frantsvog of the City of Minot Ward 3.

Residents say that they're frustrated with the extra traffic near their homes and the lack of parking during the construction project. 

Currently, the Minot attorney is reviewing the paperwork, and the city must have a response in the next 20 days.
