       1.      Proposed Brigham Oil Lease

Commissioner Bekkedahl stated he has been researching this issue since the last meeting. Bekkedahl
goes on to say that there was a meeting Tuesday December 22, with staff and the City Attorney and
previous City Attorney to get input as to what took place prior to the lease. Bekkedahl asked the City
Attorney to research on the need or possible need to bid the acres and states that in 1980 the airport
property was leased to Duncan Oil which was a straight negotiation with the Commission as was done
with Brigham Oil on this property. Bekkedahl goes on and states the question rose about the possibility of
a state statute requiring minerals also be opted out on a bid process as City or public property is done.

Furuseth said his research concluded that there is a procedure in the Century Code for bidding out the
minerals that have to be followed and these minerals are no exception. Furuseth states that nothing can be
done with the Brigham lease offer at this point.

Lawson asked if the bids can be advertised in the paper, Furuseth said yes but wasn’t sure when the
Commission wanted to set them for, Kautzman said it was suggested coordinating them with the State
sales items since they have several bidders. Furuseth stated that according to the Statue it had to be done
here, Kautzman suggested having the State’s sale here. Bekkedahl said the State Land Board does move
their sales from one area to another and the next sale is in February and states he has a listing of properties
that the City no longer owns but may have some mineral interests.

Lawson commented that the City may have to hire someone to do the research, Bekkedahl said yes and
there will be some expenses involved in this project.

Bekkedahl said there are a couple of options and would like to meet with Staff and the City Attorney for
further discussions and suggested another Commissioner be part of the meeting, Lawson said he would
like to be part of the meeting.

Bekkedahl said he spoke with the Auditor about tabling the Brigham Lease until further information can
be gathered.

       2.      Committee Recommendation on Offer to Purchase Remainder of Cimmaron Trailer
               Court – Ron Oster with Right to Assign

Lalim stated the Lot Sales Committee met regarding the offer from Ron Oster for the purchase of
City Commission Meeting                                  9                                    December 22, 2009

Cimmaron Heights and came up with a price of $1750 per lot. The Committee recommended accepting
the offer of $591,500 with the City to negotiate the terms. Lalim said there were a couple of issues: 1) the
engineering department wants the proposed buyer to sign a non-protest of resurfacing 32nd Street to
include an overlay and 2) the rent the City received prior to closing should stay with the City, which had
been crossed out on the agreement and initialed by Mr. Oster to accept the change in the agreement.
Lawson commented that there are 338 units.

Kautzman states Oster indicated that there may be a possibility to close before February 10, 2010 which is
stated on the agreement.

Klug asked Oster how he is going to run the trailer court and if he is going to try to follow the suggestions
for what is needed in Williston, Oster said primarily and that he does wants to fill the lots. Klug asked if
he is going to let people bring their trailers in or is he going to sell his own, Oster said it will be open to
the public.

Unknown asked if there will be an age limit on the trailers, Lawson said Oster will have a separate place
for those trailers. Oster said the trailers will need to be evaluated as well.

MOTION BY BOGAR, 2ND BY BEKKEDAHL, to accept the offer from Ron Oster for the
Cimmaron Trailer Park for $591,500 with the conditions the building department has advised.

       C.     Street and Improvement, Sanitation, Cemetery and Public Works Commissioner
              1.      Request for Street Light Removal from Petroleum Services - Mike Palmer

Mike Palmer stated he feels there is adequate lighting in the area and the light is a hazard when people
coming into the parking area which has been hit quite a few times. Palmer states if he were to sell the
building and the lighting situation changes he would be willing to pay to have the light put back up.

Meiers said he doesn’t agree with removing the light because they are designed for the streets and
wonders what will happen if the lights on the building aren’t turned on nor available, will the City have to
go back and put the light back up or decide it isn’t needed. Meiers states the lights can be shut off and the
pole can remain on the property or does Palmer want the pole removed, where Bekkedahl asked if the
issue is the physical location of the pole that is creating problems with the traffic to his business, Palmer
said yes and would like the pole removed.

MOTION BY KLUG, 2ND BY BEKKEDAHL, to allow Petroleum Services to remove the street
light at their expense with the stipulation that if the street light needs to be replaced it will be at
Petroleum Services expense and if the business were to be sold the new business will replace the
street light at their expense.

opportunity and speaking with Mr. Neff to see what his interest is and how this might be done. Lawson

Kautzman states he is looking for authorization on a 2010 budgetary item to transfer funds. The transfer
would come from the sales tax fund and put it into the water fund of $3.1 million. Kautzman states the
use for sales tax funds allows the City to use them for infrastructure purposes and in this case we have
debt tied into the infrastructure which makes the connection.

MOTION BY BEKKEDAHL, 2ND BY BOGAR, to approve the request to use sales funds for the
water fund of $3.1 million.

Bekkedahl states on some of the bond lettings for improvements to the water plant system we have tied
some of those recent bond issues to be guaranteed back to the sales tax fund which has allowed keeping
the water rates below the cost of servicing the debt this will eliminate having to increase water rates to the
public.

Wenko announced a new business named Trails of Legends Tour, LLC that is starting up a motor coach
tour business that is seeking to promote tourism in the area with 11 tours starting in 2010.
City Commission Meeting                               14                                  December 22, 2009

Wenko introduced the Director of Trails of Legends Tour Frankie Aars and informed the Commissioners
that Trails of Legends Tour are seeking a $10,000 grant to assist in the promotion of the tours.

Aars gave the Commissioners an overview by power point, a tourism fact handout and a booklet from
Great Lakes Airlines called “Peaks & Plains”.

Aars wanted to clarify that this program is not part of the Marquis Plaza or Missouri Flats Inn, which she
is the Operations Manager of both, but this is a separate entity being hosted by the two hotels.

Aars states the concept for the tour came about four years when she participated as a tour guide on the
Trail and Rails Program that has been going on for several years and is a joint venture between the
National Park Service and Amtrak. Aars gave an overview of that program. Aars stated that she is a
board member of Economic Development and part of their agenda is to create diversity within our
economic structure and this tour falls into that part of the diversity. Aars gave the Board some history on
starting this tour program. Aars goes on to say that the hotels are not running at 100% occupancy as is
being said and the occupancy rate at the Missouri Flats Inn is 83.39% year to date and the Marquis Plaza
is 85.53% mainly due to the oil and she would like to see them at capacity from tourism.

Aars went over the Trails of Legends Tour Tourism Fact sheet and One Fulfillment handout.

Aars said this is an all inclusive 7 day tour designed to offer the touring public a comprehensive tour of
some of the most significant sights in North Dakota. The tour is slated to begin in the spring of 2010 and
will primarily focus on the Western Region of the state beginning with the sites surrounding Williston.
Aars read over the schedule that will take place for those 7 days and stated that each town will host the
events for those days highlighting special events that are taking place.

Lawson read that the STAR Fund Board recommends to the City Commission to approve a grant in the
amount of $10,000 to Trail of Legends Tour, LLC to promote our region as a tourism destination.

those businesses had to be zoned commercial or industrial.

Lalim gave some history on the land option agreement between the City and George Gaukler. Lalim said
Gaukler has purchased 6 more acres to build two 36-plexes which leaves approximately 11 acres that he
still wants options on for one-year to further expand his four 36-plexes. The Committee recommended
approval to the Commission to accept his one-year extension but the Committee also felt that he should
have to put a 10% down payment with a no refund clause if he doesn’t exercise a sale or choose a 5%
down payment with a First Right of Refusal if someone comes in within a year to purchase the property.

Lalim said the Committee is recommending to accept the one-year extension with either a 10% or 5%
down with a First Right of Refusal, Kautzman said that Gaukler opted for the 10% down payment, one-
year extension and no refund and states the City Attorney has put together an option agreement.

Bogar asked what the dates will be; Furuseth said it would have to be tonight’s date of December 22,
2009.
