A state legislator from Minot is proposing the city get $1 million in state money to address flood-damaged homes that have been neglected or abandoned in the past three years.....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A state legislator from Minot is proposing the city get $1 million in state money to address flood-damaged homes that have been neglected or abandoned in the past three years.
 
     Rep. Scott Louser tells the Minot Daily News that he's drafted a bill for next year's Legislature. It would provide upfront money for the city to deal with so-called "zombie homes," with the costs ultimately being assessed to the property owners. Recouped money would go to the Minot Park District.
 
     The Souris River in June 2011 swamped more than 4,000 homes, businesses and other structures. Hundreds of nuisance properties remain throughout Minot.  The City Council earlier this year dedicated $74,000 in sales tax money to the cleanup effort and directed city staff to look for other funding sources.
