There will not be a mayoral recall election in Bismarck.

A group opposing Mayor Mike Seminary circulated petitions for a recall. The group needed 1898 valid signatures to recall the mayor. 2405 signatures were collected. But Bismarck city manager Keith Hunke said because of discrepancies, the state's Bureau of Criminal Investigation was called in to take a look.

Long time Bismarck City Administrator Bill Wocken will retire next spring.

Wocken has served the city for more than 43 years. He handed Bismarck City Commissioners his retirement letter early – saying it gives city leaders time to plan for his successor.

Traffic at Bismarck Airport has increased drastically over the last few years. The addition of a new Allegiant Airlines flight will add to this increased traffic.  

Parrel Grossman is one of the Bismarck City Commissioners. Last week the Bismarck City Commission approved an airport incentive package.  Grossman said the package includes one year fee waivers and marketing assistance for the Bismarck airport.
