Weather permitting, North Dakota legislators from two Grand Forks districts said they plan to host forums for their constituents on Saturday.

Lawmakers serving districts 17, 18, 42 and 43 were scheduling their events around Blizzard Geraldine on Thursday morning, which is projected to leave anywhere from 8 to 12 inches of snow in the Grand Forks area by Friday.

Districts 17 and 43 still have plans as of Thursday afternoon to meet with constituents Saturday.

Sen. Ray Holmberg and Reps. Mark Sanford and Mark Owens said they plan to host a meeting for constituents at Choice Health and Fitness, 4401 S 11th St., in District 17 from 10 to 11:30 a.m Saturday.

Sen. JoNell Bakke and Reps. Mary Adams and Matt Eidson said they intend to have their meeting at 9 a.m. Saturday at Sharon Lutheran Church, 1720 S. 20th St.

Sen. Scott Meyer and Reps. Corey Mock and Steve Vetter said they're planning to hold a meeting from 10 to 11:30 a.m. March 30 at the Chamber of Commerce, 202 N 3rd St.

Sen. Curt Kreun and Reps. Emily O'Brien and Jake Blum have decided to reschedule their District 42 meeting for a later date, Blum said. They originally had originally to host an event at the UND bookstore at 10 a.m. Saturday morning.

This will be District 43's third meeting, with a fourth one scheduled for April 6. Districts 17, 18 and 42 held their first meetings Feb. 2.
