Markusen along with JerrL Bennington, Mike Hodek, Joel Hylden, Loren Zavalney, and Park Board members Kyle Halverson, Nic Beneda, Deena Lorton, and Mavis Nelson, brought new information to present to the Council including conceptual mock ups of the proposed multi-purpose facility. Markusen said informal meetings and discussions have been held defining various uses and options for the facility. An architect was hired and drew up 15 similar layouts to the drawings presented to the Council. Events factored and considered in design concepts were baseball, basketball, hockey, figure & community skating, and gymnastics. Many other sports and social events were also considered with the possibilities of Taekwondo, aerobics, general public walking track, golf cage, soccer, in-line skating, conference or events rooms, fair exhibits, fitness center, racquetball court, curling, and tennis courts. Complex opportunities also could host hockey and baseball tournaments, camping, pool site, horseshoe pits, famers market and the list goes on. The events center would be 145' X 350' with an estimated cost of $5.5 to $6 million. The complete the entire 40 acre complex would cost approximately $8 million which includes the building, baseball/softball diamonds, 330 parking spaces, 20 camping sites, paving and landscaping. Funding could possibly come from the following; pledges, fundraising events, grant programs, user fees, naming rights, property tax mills, and donations. The last consideration for the project is who would be the ownership and management of the facility. Markusen said social media will be a great tool to let people know about the project and to provide feedback and ideas. S Currie suggested the first thing they should do is look at setting up a non- profit 501(c)(3) corporation• On behalf of the Council, Mayor Stenvold thanked Markusen for all the time and effort that has been put into the project.

Byron seconded the foregoing Resolution and upon roll call vote, all voted aye. Motion carried. North Star Coop presented an application for an "Off Sale only" liquor license for its facility located on Highway 17. One license is available. Councilman Blake questioned the need for another liquor store in Park River. Are there not presently enough establishments to meet the need in a community our size? Park River Ordinance 2b states, "available liquor licenses are approved at the Council's discretion and can be denied if they feel existing establishments fulfill the need of the community." Knutson moved to approve North Star Coop's application and grant them an "Off Sale" only liquor license. Anderson seconded, and upon roll call vote, members present voted as follows; Lorton, Knutson, and Anderson voted aye. Blake, Lundquist, and Byron voted nay. Mayor Stenvold cast the tie- breaking vote and voted aye. Motion carried. T Larson updated the Council on the construction progress of the North Star Addition. Water and sewer line installation began on May 9th. Eight trees will need to be removed for Polar Communications to relocate their fiber , optic lines. This will cost the Project $2,400. Money from the Sales Tax Fund • will be requested to help service the debt on the project until enough is generated by the Tax Increment Financing, as was done on the South View Addition. The money will be paid back to the Sales Tax Fund at the end of the TIF. T Larson provided the Council with an update on the 135th Avenue NE road project. Jon Markusen of KLJ, Inc will speak with property owners along the road project to inform them that the drainage ditch will come right up to the field. The Corps of Engineers sent the City of Park River a bill for $983.27 as the final amount due on the Dam Safety Project started in 2000. T Larson will research what fund was used to pay the original bills and report back to the council at the June meeting. The July 4th celebration planning is moving forward. Alumni banquet, street dance, parade, inflatable games, car show, piano recital, face painting, pipe & drum band, and fireworks are on board so far. Fewer organizations are putting on events and additional volunteers are needed to help with activities. T Larson asked the Council to allow the Municipal Utilities Fund to sponsor one-half the cost of the inflatable games. Knutson moved to approve T Larson's request. Blake seconded and upon roll call vote, all voted aye. Motion carried. Lundquist moved to extend the Club Bar & Lounge's Liquor License to the City Hall Auditorium as a backup venue for the Jack & Linda Gillespie Anniversary on June 1, 2013.
