MINOT CITY COUNCIL

SCHEDULED MEETING

JANUARY 4, 2021 AT 5:30 P.M.

Members Present: Evans, Jantzer,

Pitner, Podrygula, Ross, Sipma

Members Absent: Olson

Mayor Sipma presiding and led the

City Council in the Pledge of Allegi-

ance

Lisa Clute, Executive Officer of First

District Health Unit, applauded the

community for their efforts which

have lowered the rate of COVID in-

fection, and have lessened the im-

pact to hospitals and funeral homes.

She mentioned the Governor’s an-

nouncement revising Executive Ord-

ers to allow increased capacity in

bars and restaurants and down-

graded the risk level from “critical” to

“moderate.” They continue to test

and the City is conducting Binax

testing at the Fire Department. She

brought up the accuracy of the Binax

testing but said despite the possible

flaws with negative results, it pro-

vides an opportunity to identify posi-

tives and isolate those affected. She

said, they are still seeing positivity

rates but encouraged continued miti-

gation. She then explained, First

District Health Unit is still conducting

pcr tests, but there has been less

demand so they adjusted their hours

from 8:30 am until noon. They can

now focus their resources on the

vaccine. The large testing events

are also continuing.

Ms. Clute said they are working with

several emergency managers to

provide first responders with the

vaccine. So far, they have had limit-

ed doses but have a request into the

State for 1,000 more which should

be received next week. Most of the

front-line workers have been vac-

cinated and the long-term care fa-

cilities should be completed by the

third week of January. The Governor

has identified the priority tiers going

forward. First District Health Unit will

vaccinate Tier 1B, then 2, then 3 as

the vaccine becomes available. She

said there is no waiting list for the

vaccine but they will distribute news

releases and post to social media to

communicate when the vaccine is

available.

Evans asked if individuals in Tier 1B

need to reach out to get the vaccine

or if they will be contacted by their

healthcare provider, to which Ms.

Clute said, they will be contacted by

a healthcare provider. She then em-

phasized the need to watch for

media releases.

The Mayor reminded the community

to watch for local media releases as

the news and number of vaccines

will vary throughout the state. He

then passed along his appreciation

to Ms. Clute, First District Health

Unit and everyone who has worked

tirelessly throughout the pandemic.

The Mayor presented a display of

trophies which he asked, Jantzer,

Task Force 21 Chairman, to dis-

cuss.

Jantzer recognized Minot AFB as

this year’s recipient of the Best

Bomb Wing Omaha trophy as well

as the Best Missile Wing Omaha tro-

phy. He said, it is rare to win both in

one year, which says volumes about

the quality of the Air Force and the

execution of the mission at Minot

AFB. He said, they are extremely

proud of the Air Force Base and the

role the dual nuclear base plays in

strategic deterrence for our nation.

He then described the Barksdale tro-

phy which is awarded every two

years for the best community sup-

port Air Force Global Strike Com-

mand Base. Minot received the tro-

phy in 2019 and is very proud to be

recognized.

Mayor Sipma said, the community

can reach out to the Chamber for

opportunities to connect with Minot

AFB.

He continued his report by describ-

ing some of his meetings and activi-

ties over the past month. He pointed

out that the Minot Fire Department

had conducted over 1,100 COVID

tests with a 9% positivity rate. He

advised the community to check the

website for adjusted hours for testing

and said it would continue through

January 9th. He gave a special

thanks to ND National Guard for pro-

viding training for the testing, Minot

Fire Department Firefighters, Assis-

tant Fire Chief Lonnie Sather for or-

ganizing the events, and City Em-

ployees for Staffing the

drive-through testing operation. He

also said, there were numerous

phone calls, e-mails, and individual

contact concerning City business. ?

Mayor Sipma concluded his report

by recognizing David Lakefield, for

his hard work as Interim City

Manager. He applauded his efforts

for working through COVID, a

software transition, and all of the

long hours.

Mayor Sipma welcomed City

Manager Harold Stewart.

Mr. Stewart presented a brief intro-

duction where he described his role

as a public servant, husband, father,

and leader. He highlighted his ex-

perience as a City Manager for the

past twelve years in three different

states. He provided background on

his education from the University of

Kansas and his credentials as an

ICMA-Credentialed Manager.

He then gave an overview of his first

week in Minot. He arrived at City

Hall December 28th and has been

working to meet with Department

Heads and Council members. He

spoke about the importance of build-

ing relationships through meetings

with key stakeholders and communi-

ty leaders. He is also getting familiar

with the city and businesses while

assessing organizational and com-

munity strengths and weaknesses.

Mr. Stewart is getting settled with

paperwork, learning software sys-

tems, organizing the office and

preparing for the Legislative Ses-

sion. In the coming weeks, he will

continue to focus on meeting peo-

ple, learning about major city pro-

jects, and building relationships with

the Minot community and with Legis-

lators. He said, his goal is for Minot

to be a leader in best practices. He

hopes for Minot to be synonymous

across the state and the nation, for

accomplishing things the right way.

He expressed his excitement for he

and his family to join the community.

He said he is impressed with City

leadership and the progress that has

been made since he last applied for

the City Manager position in 2014.

He emphasized the importance of

transparency in local government

and said he is available to connect

with the community through positive

interactions.

The City Attorney submitted a writ-

ten report. She explained there was

an update under the Cypress

Development section regarding

pending motions. A hearing took

place earlier that afternoon in front of

the Court and a motion was granted

to continue the trial because it was a

COVID related request. The Judge

ordered the Calendar Clerk to

reschedule it at least three months

out. The motion to compel was tak-

en under advisement so a decision

will be relayed to the Council when

available.

Evans asked if there is a timeline for

the additional staff the Council au-

thorized for the Attorney’s Office. At-

torney Hendershot said, they re-

ceived six applications by the dead-

line and are scheduling interviews

with the candidates.

Pitner moved Jantzer seconded and

was carried unanimously to approve

ular City Council meeting; approve

ing to consider an application for

son of Dakota Apple Partnership for

a new construction project on a

multi-tenant retail store. Dakota Ap-

ple Partnership is requesting a

five-year property tax exemption, in-

cluding improvements on property

located at 304 4th Avenue NW. No

quest.

Pitner moved Evans seconded and

mously to close the public hearing

tion, including improvements on the

mously to adopt resolution no. 3680

to add a parking restriction to the

East side of 10th Street NE, south

50-feet from the center of the 9th

Avenue NE intersection. Jantzer

asked if it would be a permanent

24-hour restriction. Stephen Joersz,

Traffic Engineer, stated, it would be

a traditional 24-hour no parking

zone. Evans asked if there was any

comment solicited from the sur-

rounding properties, to which Mr.

Joersz said they had not reached

out to residents.

Aaron Moss, representing the North

Dakota Fraternal Order of Police,

Souris Valley Regional Lodge #7,

brought attention to the 100th an-

niversary of the most recent line of

duty death in the Minot Police

20, 1920 and succumbed to his

wounds the following day. Officer

Moss said he intended to hold a

memorial service however, due to

distancing restrictions, it will be post-

poned.

Mayor Sipma reminded the com-

munity that June 22, 2021 would be

the 10-year anniversary of the 2011

flood. He said, June 26th was the

date of the highest crest and he

plans to hold a ceremony to recog-

nize the devastation and the

recovery that has taken place since

2011.

There being no further business,

Pitner moved Ross seconded and
