3.      Bid Openings
        A.     Bid Tabulation – 7th Street Water Main Replacement Project 162

Meiers handed out a recap of the bids. The pipe bursting installation portion was a base bid and it was bid
with the water main replacement and patching, and also included a section with an alternative and
overlaying the entire area. The 12 inch water main to be replaced is in a five block area, from Main to
University on 7th street. The low bid was Kemper Construction at $316,189 and $250,000 was budgeted
for the project. Meiers feels that if they are going to limit how much they are going to do, then the five
blocks they want to do are the two blocks from Second to Main and then three blocks the other direction.
Since they have limited money, they talked about just focusing on the five blocks and not do the asphalt
overlay.
June 9, 2009                                          9                              City Commission Meeting


In review, Meiers said he included Kemper Construction’s breakdown of the cost for the asphalt patching
for the blocks. The contractor did ask for an additional $7,000 for immobilization since the five blocks
was his major base bid, and a change order will need to be done if the bid is awarded to Kemper. The bid
is now at $302,639 which is less because they don’t have to go through the Main Street intersection.
Meiers recommends awarding the bid to Kemper Construction for the pipe bursting of section 1, in the
amount of $316,189 and to do a change order to reduce the price down to around $302,000.

Koeser asked if they are just going to fix the asphalt over the area they are working on, which Meiers
replied they will not be cutting the whole asphalt since they will be doing a pipe burst and the area at the
intersections that will opened up with be patched.

Koeser wondered if they would be voting now for the $316,189 bid to be accepted, then a change order
would be brought in at a later time and Meiers said that is what would happen. He added they will still be
over budget by $52,000 but they decided when they did the budgets for next year; they would program it
to be included into improvement dollars for next year.

MOTION BY KLUG, 2ND BY LAWSON, to accept the Engineer’s recommendation and reward the
contract to Kemper Construction in the amount of $316,189.

Koeser wanted to make everyone aware that they had a vote today to continue the one percent sales tax
for 10 years. There were 742 votes cast, with 513 voting yes and 229 no, so the tax will be in place for
another 10 years. This tax helps to do projects like the one just talked about and he thanked everyone for
their support.

4.      Public Hearings
        A.      Soto Holdings, LLC

Koeser opened the public hearing and asked Dr. Sara Solberg to go over what they are looking to do.
Solberg stated they are requesting property tax exemption for the next five years while they are
establishing a new medical clinic for the community. Soto Holdings will own and operate the building
and land that will be leased to Great Plains Women’s Health Clinic, which is owned by Solberg and Dr.
Tong. They are very excited and motivated to invest in Williston as a community, and feel very strongly
about providing quality healthcare to the women in this community and surrounding communities.

The new clinic will be approximately 9,500 square feet and will be located at the northwest corner of 11th
Street West and Gate Avenue. The new space will accommodate patient flow and demand, giving them
15 exam rooms. They anticipate recruiting a third OB-GYN doctor which will help create more job
positions at the clinic and help them extend their services beyond this community even more. Currently
65% of their patients come from the Williams County area, leaving the rest to come from surrounding
communities. Solberg said they experienced a 21% increase in the number of patients they provided
healthcare to in 2008 compared to 2007, and expect to see that grow again with the growth of their clinic.

Solberg added that their new medical clinic will add a great deal to this community and they are
respectfully asking for the five year property tax exemption to be passed.

Koeser thanked Solberg and asked if there were any questions. Klug asked where their clinic is now, at
which Solberg said they currently rent space from Mercy Medical Center. Klug wondered if the hospital
June 9, 2009                                         10                             City Commission Meeting


is going to be able to rent out the space to someone else and Solberg replied that the hospital already has
plans for that space. Klug also wanted to know if they were going to be able to do any new procedures at
the new clinic. Solberg said they will be, since Mercy Medical is a Catholic Health Initiative
establishment they are limited to the procedures they can perform, like sterilization, and the new facility
will allow them to offer those office procedures to the women of this community.

Gooch-Egge stated that Soto Holdings applied for the new industry exemption and the Commission can
grant anywhere from zero to five years and zero to 100 percent, which excludes the land. They are asking
for the five years at 100 percent. The recommendation of the City/County Abatement committee was to
grant them two years at 100 percent and three years at 50 percent.

Koeser called for public input.

Rolfstad commented that the new industry exemption was intended for this kind of expansion. By them
coming here and setting up a practice, we are getting people to use our hospital and community more than
what they are at the present time. Having a third OB-GYN doctor would dramatically increase the
number of patients coming here. Allowing them to grow and expand is a big plus for the community.

Koeser called a second, third and final time for public input. Hearing no input, the hearing was closed.

MOTION BY LAWSON, 2ND BY BOGAR, to follow the recommendation of the abatement
committee and grant Soto Holdings a new industry exemption at 100% for two years and 50% for
three years.

        B.      LaFave Properties, LLC

Koeser opened the public hearing and asked Gooch-Egge to go over what is being requested. Gooch-
Egge stated that Joe LaFave is proposing a new motel across the street from the County Courthouse
where the old recycling building was. Initially he requested a new industry exemption at 100% for five
years and then decided to request a Payment in Lieu first and he would fall back on the new industry
exemption if this request was denied.

The difference between the Payment in Lieu of Taxes and the new industry exemption is a set amount that
was negotiated will be paid each year instead of the tax bill with the Payment in Lieu, while the New
industry exemption is an exemption of zero to 100% for zero to five years, and taxes will still be paid on
the land. LaFave has requested $0 for years one through five, $5,000 for years six through 10, $7,500 for
years 11 through 15 and $10,000 for years 16 through 20. The recommendation from the City/County
Abatement committee was to deny the Payment in Lieu but grant the new industry exemption for five
years at 100%.

LaFave stated the reason he feels the Payment in Lieu is so important for this project is because he wants
to make sure the motel project takes off and does well in this community. He has been facing some issues
that include not being on US Hwy 2, not being close to other motels and not being close to the airport.
He commented that he likes the site but it is a little smaller than he would like it to be. The advantages of
having the motel downtown are it is going to be a huge asset to the downtown community; it will be
convenient for people to stay at the extended stay motel when working out of town and have places to
shop and eat close by and having a conference room and bar available on site.
June 9, 2009                                        11                             City Commission Meeting



LaFave said he knows Candlewood was offered a Payment of Lieu with $0 payment for years one
through five and $20,000 payments for years six through 10, so he thought to be fair, he would cut it in
half and ask for half of what Candlewood will be paying.

LaFave went on to say that he is the president of Lakeside Builders and also the president of Midwest
Leasing and has been a developer for the past 25 years. He is anxious to do this project but wants to
make sure he gets in on the right foot. He understands that there are hotels that have been in this
community for a long time and hopes if they do upgrades and changes to their establishments, they will
be offered the same incentives as he is being offered.

Koeser asked him what his timeline is for this project, at which LaFave said he would like to start in
August and be done with the motel by the spring of 2010.

Koeser called for public input.

Klug asked how many rooms are needed for a hotel liquor license and LaFave answered 70. Klug
wondered how he was going to put a bar in there when he was only going to have 56 and LaFave replied
that he would have to pay $25,000 to get the license. Klug said that was not the case, that license was a
restaurant license. Kautzman added the $25,000 license available is for an establishment that has a
majority of their sales that are food related, and it appears his lounge would be more bar than restaurant.
Klug mentioned there are other considerations that need to be looked at that make it more a restaurant
than a bar license. Kautzman said he would get LaFave the section and let him read through it, as long as
he meets the requirements and the Board approves, he would be able to get the license.

LaFave wanted to mention the motel could be added onto in the future. Everything in the motel has been
mapped out to be able to do that.

Koeser called a second, third and final time for public input. Hearing no input, the hearing was closed.

Koeser mentioned there were a variety of actions that could be taken, including the Payment in Lieu or
the new industry exemption.

MOTION BY LAWSON, 2ND BY BOGAR, to follow the recommendation of the Abatement
committee and grant a new industry exemption at 100% for five years.

Klug said the Commission just gave a new industry exemption of 100% for two years and 50% for three
years to a business that is expanding and that business would bring new procedures into Williston, and
now this business is coming in and competing with other hotels and lounges and the Commission is going
to give them 100% for five years, why would they want to give them more incentives than someone that
is bringing something new into town. Koeser doesn’t think there is a response for that. Klug feels to be
fair to all the businesses coming into Williston; they need to do the same thing for each business. Koeser
thanked Klug for his comments.

Rolfstad asked Gooch-Egge what the Candlewood Suites received on their Payment in Lieu of Taxes.
Gooch-Egge said they will pay $0 for years one through five and $20,000 for years six through 10, and
they are about double the size and cost as LaFave’s project. The Holiday Inn will pay $0 for years one
through five, $20,000 for years six through 10, $25,000 for years 11 through 15 and $30,000 for years 16
through 20. The Holiday Inn project is much larger. Rolfstad mentioned the other two motels are
receiving a lot more than LaFave is so he agrees there should be some consistency when giving
incentives.

Klug said he was opposed to the Candlewood Suites Payment in Lieu also. He doesn’t feel it was right to
give the local developer who brought in a new hotel three years at 100% and three years at 50%, but give
the out of town developers better incentives. Kautzman asked Gooch-Egge to recap what other hotels in
the community can apply for when doing improvements. She replied they can apply for the new industry
or expanding business exemption, or the Payment in Lieu of Taxes.

        A.      Upper Missouri District Health Unit - “Erase your E-waste” recycling program

Koeser asked the representative of the Upper Missouri District Health Unit to tell them about the
program. Dan Saint, who is the Environmental Health Practitioner at the Health Unit, and they are
looking to hold their third cross border cooperative E-cycling event with their partners in Sidney, MT in
September. E-waste is a program that is designed to collect and assist people in recycling used
electronics. The materials in these used electronics are susceptible in being released into the environment
over time. They are attempting to provide an opportunity for the citizens of this area to recycle these
materials in a constructive fashion. A company from Wyoming comes in and collects these electronics
and they disassemble the electronic components and break them apart. Some of the materials are resold
and used again and others are disposed of properly.

Saint said there is a $.40 per pound charge by the recycler for these components being taken away, so
they have been soliciting funds from businesses to help with the cost of recycling. They are looking to
the Commission to support their program and give them a grant in the amount of $1,000 to help
supplement the cost of having the recycler recycle the equipment.

Koeser asked where the money came from, at which Kautzman thought it came out of the contingency or
general fund. Meiers commented that he budgeted a $1,000 in the landfill/recycle fund.

Meiers stated just about all storm sewers in the City are concrete pipe and there is only one supplier for
the concrete, so they came up with a program to be able to also bid using metal pipe. When contractors
bid the metal pipe, they don’t tell the City what kind of pipe it is until after they have been awarded the
project. This has caused a problem because if they don’t like the pipe, then a change order has to be done
so they can use the concrete pipe instead of the metal pipe. Meiers commented that they don’t want to
use metal pipe underneath 4th Avenue, so he is requesting a change order to use the concrete pipe at an
additional cost.

Meiers remembers this issue has come up another time. The problem they are having with the comp time
is in December a lot of comp time is accumulated because of snow removal and the current policy states
that all comp time will be forfeited at the end of the year which leaves the employee no time to use the
comp time. He is requesting a policy change or the ability for them to have some leeway to do something
different when dealing with this particular circumstance. Klug asked how the Tom Johnson situation was
handled. Meiers said he talked with Johnson and he didn’t remember how it was handled but thought he
had gotten all the comp time to be used during the next year. Kautzman suggested this issue be brought
back to the Personnel committee if they are looking to make a policy change so they can go through other
possible pitfalls. If they are looking at doing something for just this instance, then a policy change is not
needed.

Wenko stated the Internship Program was first brought to the Commission back in March and it was a
pilot program that was designed to help them work towards the retention pillar of work force development
by investing now for the future. Even though these students will be going away for college, their hope is
they will come back and use some of the contacts they met through the program.

The two students, Mari Goldade and Rory Guenther, worked for Economic Development for nine weeks.
The program went very well but they feel that the next internships should be longer and the students
should be a little bit older, so they will be working with Williston State College next year. The program
cost about $1,500, with each student receiving $500 scholarships. Half of the cost of the program will be
refunded by the Hometown Competitiveness grant through the State.

Information regarding this program will be posted on the Workforce Development section of the City of
Williston website.

                2.        LaFave Properties, LLC request for possible PACE participation

Rolfstad stated LaFave is requesting a Flex PACE buy-down. This request has not been reviewed by the
Star Fund yet, but since LaFave was at the meeting for the property tax exemption, Koeser felt they
should deal with the buy-down request at the same time. Rolfstad went over the flex pace program that
was created by the Bank of North Dakota.

Brutger Equities received a $65,000 Flex PACE buy-down earlier this year, so Rolfstad included the same
form and buy-down amount for LaFave. The challenge with any building project is dealing with the
construction loan because they won’t know until a year from now, when permanent financing is locked in,
how the money will be used. Rolfstad presented an example of an interest buy-down, which showed
interest rates going from 6.5% to 1.5% and the payments being lowered by about $4,700 per payment for
a seven year term. Rolfstad commented that if other motels in Williston wanted to remodel they would be
able to apply for the PACE buy-down also.

Koeser noticed it showed the $65,000 would have to be paid back, at which Rolfstad said he put that in
there after doing the same thing for Brutger who will be paying back the money after year seven.

Koeser wanted to mention the recommendation coming before the Commission was from staff, not the
Star Fund; normally the request would go through them first.

MOTION BY LAWSON, 2ND BY BOGAR, to have the Star Fund review the request.

LaFave wanted to add that he has been doing a lot of research on the financing and he is doing the exact
same thing the Candlewood Suites did. He feels this is a critical point of the financing because it has
already been done this way. He hopes the Commission can do the same thing for him as they did for
Brutger.

Klug asked if the $65,000 was needed to access the Bank of North Dakota, at which Rolfstad answered
the PACE buy-down is a partnership with the State and the match is based on a formula.

it should probably be tabled.

        J.      Assessor
                1.     Exemption Information

Gooch-Egge stated after Legislation came through for 2009, Homestead Credit, which is offered to people
65 or older or who are permanently disabled, the asset limitations were increased from $50,000 to
$75,000. Also when figuring the income, they subtract any medical expenses paid out of pocket from the
income for the year, which previously had a $17,500 limit but was raised to $26,000.

Gooch-Egge mentioned that Williams County has more Homestead Credit applications than the City of
Fargo and the money is reimbursed by the State.

The blind exemption, which previously allowed $111,110 of their home to be exempt, was increased to
$160,000. Kautzman asked if this exemption had any income requirements and Gooch-Egge said it did
not, they just had to have a physician’s form.

The Disabled Vet reimbursement is now going to be reimbursed from the State so those tax dollars will
not be lost.

The new residence exemption is currently sitting up with the State’s Attorney for some interpretation;
they may have to continue that to the State for an Attorney General opinion. There is a big disagreement
between the State and tax directors on how this is to be carried out and some of the ramifications of this.
It is supposed to come into effect as of August 1st, hopefully by then they will have some answers. As of
August 1st they can go with the new format or throw it out completely, but whatever the Commission
decides to do, a resolution will have to be passed. Koeser asked if this is the one legislature that they
thought was changed from 75,000 to 150,000 at which Gooch-Egge said that was the one. She went on to
say there is a question on if it is only for two years or if it changed to four years, and wording being
changed stating a builder can have the exemption on ten homes, they don’t know if that means one
person, what happens if he has more than one company, does that mean per county or around the State,
there are just a lot of unknowns at this time.

In the past with the new industry exemption and the Payment in Lieu, there hasn’t been an issue because
there have only been about one per year, but this past year there were nine. There are a lot of issues that
have come about because the packets are huge and people don’t like to read everything. Gooch-Egge will
be attaching a cover letter to the packets that highlight the key points.

Gooch-Egge is requesting a motion on creating a committee to come up with more specific guidelines for
the City and County for the New or Expanding Business Exemptions so there is more consistency. She
said maybe the City/County Abatement committee could be used. The City can still do this case-by-case
but she would like to see a committee put together and see if it can be addressed better. Koeser feels the
Tax Abatement committee would be able to do that since they are familiar with what is going on.

MOTION BY BOGAR, 2ND BY KLUG, to ask the City/County Abatement committee to review the
New or Expanding Business Exemption guidelines.

                2.      Williston Township

There was an issue with the Williston Township Local Equalization Board reverting all the values back to
the 2008 values and the issue with equity. The County Equalization Board reverted them back to the
2009 values, so the issue has been taken care of.

Gooch-Egge also mentioned she will be on vacation from July 3rd through July 20th so she will not be
attending the first Commission meeting.

10.     Appointments and Consultations with Officers
        A.     Appointment of Connie Teske to the Cemetery Advisory Board

Koeser stated Judith Lodwig stepped down from the Cemetery Advisory Board and Lodwig suggested
appointed Connie Teske, which Klug mentioned the Cemetery Advisory Board agreed with the
recommendation.

MOTION BY LAWSON, 2ND BY BOGAR, to appoint Connie Teske to the Cemetery Advisory
Board for the remainder of Judith Lodwig’s term.

11.     Unfinished Business
        B.      Zone Change from R-1: Single-Family Residential to R-3: Low-Rise, Multi-Family and
                Townhouse Residential of Lots 1-3, Bailey Subdivision-Liffrig

Koeser stated there was a hearing held last Commission meeting but the issue was tabled because there
were two Commissioners absent. There will not be another hearing tonight, but the policy is if someone
attends the meeting with this interest in mind, they will be allowed to speak. The Planning and Zoning
Board recommends denying the request by Liffrig. Koeser asked if any of the interested parties would
like to address the Commission.

John Wesoloski stated he lives across the street from the proposed zone change. He said Klug mentioned
at the last Commission meeting there was a motion made in 1997 or 1998 that R-3 housing was going to
stop where Owan’s townhouses ended and there would be either single family housing or a church built in
the lots in question. They are hoping the decision made back then will be upheld now, which would be to
keep the property zoned as R-1.

MOTION BY LAWSON, 2ND BY KLUG, to follow the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning
Board and deny the zone change request from R-1:Single-Family Residential to R-3: Low-Rise,
Multi-Family and Townhouse Residential of Lots 1-3, Bailey Subdivision-Liffrig.

12.     New Business

Kautzman wanted to mention there was a bid opening this afternoon for the 51-unit lower income housing
project, which has been done three times now and the bids have come down. The apparent low bid came
in at $4,850,000 and their prior bid was $5,080,000. The other bid came in at $5,067,456.19 and their
prior bid was $5,194,961.25. What will happen next is a memorandum of understanding between the
private investor and the Commission and hopefully he will be able to present it to the Board at the next
Commission meeting. There is a lot of public money that is going into this project but most of this
investment is private.
