Officials in Dakota Dunes are working to build a permanent levee to prevent a repeat of last year's devastating flooding, but some people aren't happy with having to pay for it.
Residents of the area built up around the Dakota Dunes Country Club are being asked to share the $2 million in flood repair costs even if they don't belong to the club.
Dakota Dunes Manager Jeff Dooley says the money will pay to take down a temporary levee on holes 17 and 18 and replace it with a permanent levee so the section will be better protected.
Resident Matt Eggers says it isn't fair to put the cost on people who aren't part of the club. But Dooley says everyone will benefit, club members or not.
