City hires special counsel to assist with parking structure issues

The City of Minot has hired special counsel to assist with potential legal issues concerning the two downtown parking structures.

The City Council approved on Tuesday the hiring of Dorsey & Whitney. The firm is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn., and currently represents the City on bond sales and pension issues.

“It’s time for the City to look more closely at all of its legal options in protecting its investments and advancing these projects for the benefit of our community,” said Minot City Manager Tom Barry.

No legal action relating to the parking structures and involving the City of Minot is pending in the court system at this time, but Barry said it’s essential that the City fully review its options relating to the projects.

Dorsey & Whitney has expertise in, among other areas, construction law, contract review, and public/private partnership relationships. They are an international firm with more than 550 attorneys in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
