Email News Alerts

Cass County will begin collecting money April 1 for a proposed Red River diversion and other flood projection projects after county voters resoundingly approved a half-cent sales tax on Tuesday.


In complete but unofficial results, the tally was 64 percent, or 30,496, in favor of the tax and 36 percent, or 17,117, against it.

County Commission Chairman Darrell Vanyo said the margin of approval was slightly lower than what he expected, but still "a vote of confidence."
