BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Federal safety inspectors have cited two Bismarck companies after a worker at a roofing job site fell about 20 feet.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration said in a statement that it has proposed a $35,000 fine for L&L; Brendel Construction and a $4,900 fine for Front Street Millwork & Lumber.

The companies can pay the fines or contest them before an independent commission.

L&L; Brendel Construction declined comment to The Bismarck Tribune. Front Street Chief Operating Officer Rick Simonson told the newspaper that he believes the fine will be reduced because the company has taken steps to increase safety. He also said the injured employee is back to work.
