Harold Steward began the discus-

sion letting the council and public

know the presentation is just infor-

mation at this point and the City

Council will be asked to take action

on this item possibly in May.

Brian Billingsley also reiterated that

a public hearing would be held in

May. He then provided the City

Council and public information on

the M Building located in Downtown

Minot. The building was built in 1962

but has been closed for 20 years.

The renovations for the M Building

are extensive but Epic hopes to in-

clude parking, an exercise room,

storage, apartments and condos,

along with commercial space. The M

Building would be considered a

blighted property and needing reha-

bilitation which makes it eligible for a

TIF.

Alderwoman Olson inquired about

the other taxing authorities such as

the Minot Public School District and

Ward County. Brian mentioned that

it is up to those entities on if they

want to participate or opt out. He

also mentioned that it would only

need the approval of the one school

district the building is located in.

David Lakefield mentioned that the

City of Minot’s bond company, PFM,

was looking into the EPIC TIF also.

Mayor Sipma asked about TIFS and

the usage of them in other communi-

ties in ND. Dave mentioned that the

process might be new to Minot but

EPIC has done others in communi-

ties located in ND.

Blake Nybakken, representing EPIC,

discussed the complete rehabilita-

tion of the building. He mentioned

that the building is currently as-

sessed at $500,000 which equals

out to $9,000/year in property taxes.

It will be a mixed use building for

commercial and residential space.

TIF agreements are a good way to

leverage private investment and it is

critical for this project to move for-

ward. The timeframe for the project

would be Fall of 2023 completion

and the apartments would be market

rate apartments.

Todd Berning, representing EPIC,

spoke on the interest the company

has with Minot because of 3 upcom-

ing projects. Three major things

have made it so Minot is a good in-

vestment including Trinity moving

forward with new development, the

school bond passing, and the Minot

Air Force Base.

Mayor Sipma discussed how a TIF

of 20 years could be deemed too

long but that is how long the building

has sat empty. Alderman Ross

asked Todd if EPIC could do this

without the TIF and the answer was

no because the demolition and as-

bestos abatement will cost over $3

million.

There were no personal appear-

ances.

Alderman Jantzer wanted to congra-

tulate MACEDC on winning the Dis-

tinguished Civilian Humanitarian

Award.

Finance Director, David Lakefield,

introduced Melody Shelkey as the

new City Treasurer. She is replacing

the current City Treasurer, Penny

Johnson, who is retiring.

Mayor Sipma discussed how with

melting snow and weather condi-

tions such as wind land around the

Landfill will need to be cleaned up

and encouraged residents to help

around their neighborhood with

clean up.

There being no further business,

Alderman Pitner moved the City

Council meeting be adjourned. Mo-

tion seconded by Alderman Ross

and carried unanimously. Meeting

adjourned at 6:33 pm.

APPROVED: Shaun Sipma, Mayor;

ATTEST: Mikayla McWilliams, City
