Doug Burgum asked Garland Erbele, N.D. State Water Commission engineer, to con- tact the various counties about choosing appointees. Erbele's office recently sus- pended the issuance of any new non- agricultural water permits in the Little Missouri River Basin up- stream from Highway 85 in response to noncompliance with the law, ac- cording to a letter that Erbele sent to Troy Tescher, Golden Valley County Commission chairman. The State Water Commission is also expecting that a preferred alternative for a pro- posed new bridge over the river north of Medora will be presented to the Billings County Commission in the coming months . Such issues would be of interest to the LRMC, according to Erbele's letter.

At the hearing, Ehlis essentially asked Gawrylow about the potential for future issues. "If these cows are returned to you, tell me what you're going to do that the sheriff won't visit you again?," the judge asked. Gawrylow said his tractor was running, and that he had two water sources, a well and a pond. Ehlis also asked about pasture conditions, con- sidering the drought, and Gawrylow said his pasture was in good condi- tion.
