This document, dated March 11, 1955, includes a letter from the City of Grafton, North Dakota, signed by Earl Machart, city auditor, sent to United States (US) Senator Langer and an attached resolution also by the City of Grafton. The letter states that the attached resolution was adopted by Grafton's City Council on March 7, 1955 and that Langer should take particular note of paragraph #11. The resolution concerns the pool level of the Garrison Dam. It states the city's support of the planned 1850 foot operating level due to a variety of factors including power revenues, small irrigation projects, water supply, and the work that already has been sunk into the project. Paragraph #11 concludes the resolution by stating that the City of Grafton requests US Congress to withdraw restrictions on the completion of the Garrison Dam and its planned operating level of 1850 feet.
