At 8:41 pm the following joined the meeting; Park Board members Kyle Halvorson, Dean Thompson, Andrew Lindell, Dr. Nic Beneda, Secretary Mavis Nelson, & Parks & Rec Manager Corri Bell. They presented an update on the proposed 40 acre recreational are. The Park District has received a $240,000 grant from the Outdoor Heritage Fund to fund the installation of 20 camp sites and new playground equipment. They are looking at possibly putting in up to 40 camp sites. The grant does not cover the cost of concrete, pavement, water, sewer, electricity, or purchasing the land and questioned what the cost of adding electric, sewer, and water to the area would total. Public Works Director D Larson estimated infrastructure cost would be approximately $150,000 to $200,000 or more. The Council felt the Planning & Zoning Committee should meet and develop a timeline for surveying and developing a layout for the 80 acres and make a recommendation to the Council. Byron reported in the past the City committed to donating some land to the Park District but not the infrastructure costs. No action was taken by the City at that time. At 8:52 pm the Park Board and others left the meeting. D Larson gave an update to the Council regarding the North Star Addition paving project. Larson reported sidewalks have been poured and concrete work has been completed on the new entrance. The dirt work by Ellingson Construction still needs to be completed and that a curb stop was bent by their work crew. The Special Assessment Committee needs to meet and determine assessment costs after publication requirements are met.

Laaveg reported she received a report from the UND Law review on *h ('.ity' proposed sex offender ordinance and recommends to the Council that it not be approved. D Larson asked the Council if he could submit a water project proposal to the state for consideration and financing in the next appropriation session so that if money is available the City would be in line to receive financing. The project would cover replacing water lines from along Railroad Ave W, between 5th Street W to 7th Street W, over to Railroad Ave E, north to Northdale Oil, west to the railroad tracks and north to the water plant.
