About a year and a half ago, local railway engineer Matt Fossum was working on a train that struck an automobile with two people inside.

The Grand Forks County Commission is paying Managing Director James Fox of Fox Lawson and Associates $3,500 to visit and present his plan to fix issues with the county's pay scale. At a meeting Tuesday, the commission approved requesting Fox visit within 30 days.
