This latest fiasco shouldn't surprise anyone. All but a very few members of the city counsel have no integrity at all. The majority of the time their votes are based on self interest and not the interest of the people that elected them. That being said, I personally find some of the groups accepting the funds from this equally reprehensible because they knew when applying for it they did not meet the required criteria to rightfully be eligible and they know who they are. The citizens of Minot need to get out in force and vote and not allow the special interest groups continue to run Minot.

ha, I own a brothel in Minot and I need new beds because my customers are falling out of the beds because of the poor conditions of the mattresses. I will need 6 new double wide bed's and mattresses with viabrating functions because the customers get very wild. it is going to cost about $50,000 Dollars, and I can't afford it, maybe Minot will give me some money.

My idea of a community facility would be city hall, library, fire stations, auditorium. Any revenue generating facility such as Maysa Arena should be self-sufficient through fees or contracts with its users. The Park Board is a taxing entity of its own so why are they tapping into city funds. The University is a State owned institution with its own ability to raise funds through specific fees. Bishop Ryan is a private school. The curling club is also a private organization. My house is privately owned - Where is my share of the fund? People need to wake up. Next time the council asks for permission from the voters for a new fund - JUST SAY NO!!

"City Budget in Denial". All but 2 Aldermen agreed. IGNORE THE FLOOD WORK. This is how our entertainment city buys candy instead of shoes for bare feet. COULD U have voted 4 these grants while we are FLOOD PRONE? Remember the EVENT CENTER for HOSTEFEST to share? It is coming. Remember this extravagant spending when you vote NO. $37M in debt., Can't afford FLOOD CONTROL but sports stuff--OH YEA. VOTE NO.

I am surprised the ALCU has not gone after some of these grants.
