An eleventh-hour framework that was approved by a Renaissance Zone supper club and a majority of liquor license holders and submitted to members of City Council brought about the desired effect — another month of debate and consideration needed to ensure the law will be written appropriately.
Other business before the City Council:
- Acting City Attorney Kelly Hendershot was promoted to City Attorney. She has been serving in that role on an interim basis for the past year.
- Gordon Krokker spoke on behalf of the men’s refuge, a Minot homeless shelter for men. The organization housed a total of 85 men last winter for a total of 1500 nights. Mr. Kroker expressed his thanks to the City Council for their support of the project.
- Perkett School outdoor skating rink approved. A third outdoor ice rink will be built near Perkett School. This project has been in development for a few years. The rink is intended to replace the Longfellow rink which was lost during the school’s flood renovation.
