MINOT, North Dakota — The city of Minot is adding a federal compliance officer to ensure proper spending of a $74 million federal grant to help with flood resilience projects.

The Minot Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1QcrRUD ) that the City Council recently approved advertising the position with an annual salary range of $57,000 to $75,000, paid by the grant.

Minot is one of 13 communities sharing in about $1 billion through the Housing and Urban Development's National Disaster Resiliency Competition. The competitive program is designed to help communities recover from a disaster and enhance their resilience in future disasters.

The Souris River in June 2011 swamped part of Minot, damaging or destroying more than 4,000 homes and other structures and causing nearly $700 million in damage.
