Minot Park Board Clears Procedural Hurdles, Puts District on Path to New Funding Method, MARC Construction

The Minot Park Board held a special meeting Wednesday afternoon to complete procedural steps needed to move forward with building the Minot Aquatics & Recreation Center and funding the Park District through a 1 cent sales tax as opposed to a property tax.

Two motions were passed, one approving the ballot language that will now be submitted to the City Council for final review and consideration, and second approving a Joint Powers Agreement needed to formalize the proposed new funding method.

If approved by the City Council, the Park Board is targeting a mid to late April election date. A citywide election must receive a majority of votes in order to enact the funding structure proposal put forward by the Park Board.

Here’s Park Board President Connie Fiest commenting on today’s meeting.
