Hillsboro, ND -- The Hillsboro City Commission held their first regular monthly meeting on Monday night, August 6th at City Hall. The commission held a public hearing on the proposed rezoning of a property owned by Doug Abentroth, who intended to build a triplex. Last meeting, it met opposition from neighbors and it did once again this week. Following some civil discussions, Hillsboro Commission President Terry Sando says they came to an agreement to downgrade to a duplex.
