The Moorhead City Council on Monday established a priority system for deciding which homes will be first in line for flood buyouts.

About 60 property owners have expressed interest in a buyout program, with 12 of those homes suffering substantial damage, defined as 50 percent or more of the pre-flood value of the home.


The other homes on the list suffered damage between 0 and 49 percent of the value of the structure.
