Hillsboro, ND -- The Hillsboro City Commission held their regular monthly meeting last week as well as a special meeting to hire a new City Auditor. During their regular meeting on Tuesday night, the commission had a great deal of discussion on the pending water agreement between the city and East Central Rural Water District. The city needs the agreement to help determine the infrastructure needed in the new Riverwalk Development. Hillsboro City Commission President Terry Sando says they are making progress, but there are a couple of key items in need of finalizing.

If an agreement can be reached soon, Sando says it is possible some infrastructure work could begin this fall if weather cooperates.

The Hillsboro City Commission was also provided a brief update on the available low income properties in the community as well, according to President Sando.
