BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED by a unanimous vote of the Bowman County Commission that county residents are to avoid adding to the hazards of wintertime driving by not placing snow within seventy-five feet (75) from the center of each road, which also includes the ditch bottom and back slope of the roadway.  Snow dumped, plowed, pushed, blown or shoveled onto a roadway can create hazards not only for motorists, but also for snowplow equipment.  Upon discovery of such incident the landowner will be given 24 hours to completely remove the obstruction.  As per N.D.C.C. 24-05-23, if the landowner fails to pay the county for the damages, the expense of the repair must be charged against the land of the landowner.  The expenses charged become a part of the taxes to be levied against the land for the ensuing year and must be collected in the same manner as other real estate taxes are collected. Dated November 21, 2017   Bowman County Commission (s)

By order of the Bowman County Commissioners, all hay must be removed from the county road right-of-ways by October 19, 2018.  If the hay is not removed, the county will remove and the cost of such removal shall be taxed against the land.
