City approves contract extension for economic development

The Minot City Council has approved a three-month contract extension with Minot Area Chamber EDC for the continuation of economic development services.

The extension is on a contract originally signed in February 2019 with Minot Area Development Corp., which has merged with the Chamber. That contract expired Dec. 31.

The vote was 6-1. Council member Paul Pitner said he looks forward to a better, longer term agreement with Minot Area Chamber EDC but cannot support extending the existing contract because the city hasn’t “gotten a bang for our buck.”

The contract runs until April 1 and includes three monthly payments of $27,375 to Minot Area Chamber EDC.
