The city of Granville will pay a $3000 fine for violations at its city owned propane plant.
Granville has the last municipally-owned propanesystem in North Dakota. It provides heat to 123 customers.
Public Service Commissioner Brian Kalk said inspectors found four separate violations. He said at first, PSC staff recommended a $30,000 fine – but Kalk said the city has solved the problems.
"This will put a bite on city revenues to pay this fine," Kalk said. "But you can't just suspend everything."
Kalk said there has to be accountability.
