A group of seven town officials toured Watford City, N.D. last week, in an effort to gather information as the Town of Terry embarks on zoning and land policy plans. The tour included an hour and a half visit with Watford City Planner Curtis Moen and Police Chief Slade Herfindahl.
Those attending the Tuesday tour were Mayor Ron Kiosse town councilmen Clinton Rakes and Josh Helmuth, town attorney Rebecca Convery, and town clerk Lynn Strasheim. Fred Rambur, who will begin his term on the Terry Town Council next year, also attended, along with land planning board member Elizabeth Smith.
“It was very informative,” Strasheim said of the visit with Watford City officials. Strasheim, who recorded the visit and took numerous photos of the surrounding area, said the group had the opportunity to ask lots of questions regarding zoning issues and crime rate increase concerns, among other topics.
A complete report of the tour will appear in an upcoming issue of the Tribune. 
Land Planning Board and Zoning Commission updates
A letter of resignation from Tracey Feickert, who briefly served on the Land Planning Board, was presented to the Town of Terry earlier this month. Citing “family circumstances” Feickert  said she doesn’t have “the needed time and energy to commit to this important project.” Information on who would take the open spot on the board was unavailable by press time.
The Zoning Commission and Land Planning Board will meet Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 7 and 8 p.m.
