EAST GRAND FORKS, MN--The East Grand Forks Police Department is asking for your help after a dip in parking tickets. The past few years, EGFPD has let residents "pay" for snow emergency tickets with food pantry donations.

Police are asking the community to consider making a donation.

GRAND FORKS, ND--Grand Forks leaders are hoping lawmakers can make it a smoother ride through the city. They are supporting a bill called the "prairie dog bill". It would funnel oil money from western North Dakota to non-oil producing cities like Grand Forks for infrastructure projects. If approved by lawmakers as planned - the city would get 12 million dollars for such projects over the next 2 years - the county would get 7 million. City leaders say this will save taxpayers money and get them to invest instead.
