Burgum Waives Hay Hauling Fees

Jul 22, 2017

Hay HaulerAs part of ongoing efforts to help farmers and ranchers hit hard by extreme drought conditions, Gov. Doug Burgum today signed an executive order waiving fees for drivers of commercial vehicles hauling hay, water and livestock supplies in drought-affected counties of North Dakota.

“Transportation costs are a major expense for ranchers being forced to move their livestock to non-drought areas or buy and haul hay from other counties and states, and this order aims to help defray those costs,” Burgum said.

The fees waived by the order include the $50 seasonal hay hauling permit fee; $15 fuel permit fee; $20 trip permit fee; $20 oversize permit fee and a related $15 service fee; and the $35 interstate single-trip permit fee and $300 annual interstate permit fee.

State Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring had requested the fee waivers in a letter to the governor Thursday.
