Suit filed against County Board of Adjustment

The Hubbard County Board of Adjustment met Monday, but the important news wasn't on the agenda.

It was the announcement by BOA chair Jerry Cole that "we're being sued" by a Grand Forks man who built living quarters above a garage on Deer and Shallow lakes without a permit.


The county's Environmental Services Office sent David and Karen Hagert a letter earlier this fall ordering them to tear down the $400,000 structure or move it into compliance.
