Public Notice Rates
In accordance with North Dakota Century Code (§ 46-05-03), the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) has established legal notice base rates.
OMB and the North Dakota Newspaper Association (“NDNA”) work together to use this base line rate and formula to determine each newspaper’s public notice line rate for straight matter based on that newspaper’s column width, font size and font style. OMB and NDNA have also agreed to standard per column inch display ad rates. Each newspaper must use its rate as approved by OMB for straight matter and display ads.
If a newspaper changes column width, font size or font style the changes must be submitted to OMB for review. A new line rate will be calculated, if necessary.
Agencies may contact NDNA to place public notices in any or all North Dakota newspapers, or contact newspapers directly.
