Coalition Receives Grant to Stop Underage Drinking

Posted: Updated:
North Dakota has a long standing record of binge drinking and that's not the only concern. Underage drinking in Minot is a problem as well.

That's why the Minot Area Safe Communities Coalition met Wednesday to discuss how to fix a growing problem.

With federal money on the way, community members hope they can find some solutions.

"This federal funding obviously recognizes that we do have a problem here. So, we're in the process of turning in our assessment. They are already know we have a problem, and we're going to find some really interesting ways I think to help our community,” says Margie Zietz of the Minot Police Department.

About 22 percent of Minot High School teens in grades ninth through 12th admitted to binge drinking.
