MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot officials say the owners of 10 Federal Emergency Management Agency housing units brought to the city after the 2011 flood must remove them from private lots.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1BrKBsV) that some homeowners bought FEMA trailers after the Souris River flood and then removed them as their homes were restored. The flood damaged or destroyed more than 4,000 homes and other structures.

Officials say all but a couple of residents with temporary units have made significant progress on restoring or rebuilding their houses. City planner Donna Bye has put out calls for help from groups to provide volunteer construction assistance.

The city has set a Monday deadline for removal, but residents will have a 30-day grace period before the city takes legal action.
