The fate of a proposed $10 million to $15 million natural gas pipeline serving Hillsboro and Mayville-Portland may be decided by the end of October.

Dakota Natural Gas has asked a number of large commercial businesses and public bodies to sign contracts agreeing to purchase natural gas prior to moving ahead with the pipeline, which would extend from Beltrami, Minn., into Traill County.

Jim Murphy, executive director of the Traill County Economic Development Commission, said the window for companies like American Crystal Sugar, Mayville State University, Traill County, the city of Hillsboro and other groups has started to close.

“It’s coming to the point where it’s either going to be a go or a no go,” Murphy said Tuesday.
