Committee Picks Facilities for Grants

Posted: Updated:

Seven community facilities will split almost three million dollars in sales tax proceeds if the full city council follows the recommendation of the community development committee.

That committee voted today to award funds to Bishop Ryan High School, Minot Curling Club, the YMCA, and Commission on Aging, as well as three projects through the Minot Parks Department.

Those three include a new, third ice rink at MAYSA.

The committee voted to give the MAYSA project one million dollars.

Committee members decided to set up what they termed "enterprise agreements" with the non-profit groups to stay within the rule of law and the state constitution.

City council member Dave Lehner - the chairman of the committee - said it was an important step to assure that the funding is legal.

(Dave Lehner, Community Development Committee) "All of the items are good. They're all to the benefit of the people. But do they meet the legalities? Not necessarily is it a good deal, is it a great even and this kind of stuff. Does it legally meet the description we need to meet for the state to be satisfied."

The full city council will have the final say on the facilities awards at its meeting next week.
