A large agricultural company and a Larimore, N.D., landowner have settled a property dispute.

The dispute was over a piece of land on the southeast corner of the Larimore Municipal Airport, which was previously owned by Roland Riemers of Grand Forks.

CHS Inc. had alleged in a suit filed last fall that Riemers, a Libertarian candidate for North Dakota secretary of state, had blocked the roadway accessing its adjacent property and destroyed a wastewater pond.

CHS has been expanding a fertilizer facility nearby.

Jon Brakke, the Fargo-based attorney representing CHS, said the company bought the 1.24 acres from Riemers. Riemers said the $45,000 sale closed a couple of weeks ago.

Riemers said CHS is going to demolish the hangar that currently sits on the land, and he plans to build a new hangar on the other side of the airport.

A court document filed in Grand Forks County District Court on June 3 states the case is being dismissed with prejudice and each side is paying its own attorney fees.

“Everything’s been resolved and peacefully settled,” Riemers said.
