       Application for Taxi License – Will Power Services Inc
Dave Will informed the commissioners he has a 16 passenger party bus which he is using to
transport people to and from bars.

Cymbaluk questioned Will if he had been operating prior to this meeting and Will responded he
started to because he wasn’t aware there was an issue with city licensing. Last week, when he
became aware of the issue, he stopped operating until he applied for the license.

Kautzman explained Will wanted to try his operation for awhile to see if there was the need for it
here and Will responded this is what he did.

Koeser asked Will if at this time he had applied for license and Will said he had. Kautzman
explained he does have the paperwork, but the concern is regarding the insurance issue if he
were in an accident.

Bekkedahl asked if this was a taxi service or a shuttle service and Kautzman responded these
are the same. Will informed the commissioners he may purchase a limo to transport people to
casinos, etc.
Cymbaluk questioned transferring legally drunk people from one bar to another and Will
responded he has a breathalyzer kit to give his passengers breath tests to see where they are
at.

Bekkedahl questioned if there was alcohol offered in this vehicle and Will responded he did not.
Bekkedahl then questioned if Will allowed alcohol brought from bars into the vehicle and Will
responded he did not, unless he does not see it. Bekkedahl asked if there was anybody other
than the patrons riding in the bus and Will responded he is thinking about hiring security in the
future, but for now it is just the driver.

Kautzman suggested this issue be referred back to the Alcohol and Liquor Committee.

Cymbaluk reminded the commissioners for a past shuttle service, it was required a plan be put
together and is wondering if we should require this now. He feels it is not safe to be dropping
off numerous guys at local bars when they have been drinking.

Bekkedahl feels when the Alcohol and Liquor Committee look at this; they need to get input
from the establishments and some of the man camp operators.

MOTION BY CYMBALUK, 2ND BY BOGAR to referred this back to the Alcohol and Liquor
Committee for review.

Koeser informed this is approximately 7.10 acres to the Schlumberger property which was
previously annexed and if this resolution is passed it will go to the County.

Kautzman explained Schlumberger approached us to have this included and we are trying to
accommodate their request.

                2.     Agreement between City of Williston/Williams County and Trinity Christian
School Foundation.
Kautzman informed the Commissioners this agreement has gone far enough that hopefully this was the
last time Mr. Brekke would deliver with Trinity, but they could not come to terms to allow it to move
forward and now Mr. Brekke is asking for an extension until December 9th. Kautzman explained there
have been other parties which have come forward and wanted into the process of gaining access to the
project.

Mr. Brekke explained he has spent the last 4-6 weeks trying to work out an agreement with Trinity
School and it has not come together. The development part of the project has not stopped with the
City Commission Meeting13                                                       November 22, 2011


plans going to the building department shortly. They have applied for the asbestos abatement with the
State of ND which has been approved. While working with Trinity the financing end has just laid there
because they thought Trinity was coming in, so now they have to go back and finish this up. Brekke is
asking for an extension until the middle of December, after conferring with some of his people.
Koeser suggested asking for the date to be December 13th, since this is our next City Commission
Meeting.

Bekkedahl asked if we are being asked to approve an extension prior to the development agreement.
Furuseth asked if the original agreements on this were still on the table and Kautzman answered these
have been changed since Trinity never wanted to move forward with this.

Koeser questioned what would happen on December 13th if more time is allowed. Brekke explained
they were basically going back to the original agreement which was GTM Properties and giving the
deposit which would close with the city.

Klug explained this has gone through Planning and Zoning and Ad-Hoc on changing the apartment
size/etc. and this individual came up with these plans and December 13th is a good request. This way
we would not have to go back and revisit this again and it is only two weeks. Cymbaluk agreed with
Klug on this also.

MOTION BY CYMBALUK, 2ND BY BEKKEDAHL to allow Jim Brekke up to December 13th to close
this transaction with the City and County at the close of business at 5PM.

        3.     Angela DeMars – Downtown Signage
Angela DeMars explained they were able to come up with final decisions from KLJ about the downtown
seasonal signage to start this season. The downtown committee met last week to approve what they
would consider the best choice for signing. She is here to review this, discuss price quotes and find out
the timing on getting these secured. The ones being looked at are seasonal signing in red adjacent to
a blue sign which has snowflakes on it which will have “Welcome to Downtown Williston”. These will be
secured on 18 poles on Main and East Broadway Streets. Each of the poles will then be secured with a
prefabricated bracket which will work on today’s current light poles, as well as the future poles that they
may go with. This would be a black metal pole (18’)/bracket with each sign on both sides and secured
with hooks and these can be used all year. If these are approved tonight, the signage can be here by
December 9th, when the Holiday Stroll will take place. Both sets of signing will run under $2,000 and
about $3,000 for the brackets, with funding being secured from the Williston Convention and Visitors
Bureau.

Klug asked if these signs were going to replace the traditional ones that are put up downtown and
DeMars replied some of the existing snowflakes are not working, so they are not the best image for the
downtown area.

Bekkedahl asked DeMars if city staff will be needed to put these signs/poles in place and DeMars is
asking the city to put them up because of the liability issue. Once the brackets are up, it is a very
simple process to change the banners. Bekkedahl questioned if the brackets have any release for high
winds and DeMars responded they do have a spring in them so they have give.

Meiers suggested getting Molstad on the Downtown Committee.

several minor items in this change order, but the main change was to provide geo-grid installation with
the road base to help stabilize the base material for the larger traffic loads in the amount of $29,542.65.
MOTION BY CYMBALUK, 2ND BY BOGAR to approve Change Order Number One.

Cymbaluk questioned if the Water District created any of this problem by approving culverts, etc on the
Baker Hughes road and Meiers responded they may have by diverting the surface water to the north.
They are at the 50th Street Road at this time and doing a block at a time, due to weather issues.

               2.      Contract Snow Removal Proposal
Scott Molstad explained he has worked on advertising and securing proposals for outside snow
removal services. The reasoning for this was due to the limited staff and also reviewing last year’s
snow totals. After advertising, he received two quotes for on call services, which do not guarantee
them anything. He is recommending that we consider using Knife River’s proposal. They will provide
their snow removal equipment with wings so driveways can be cleared. The plan is for them is to clear
the west side of the highway, south of Wal-Mart. Knife River would not clear the trailer courts (most of
these streets are privately owned), along with Harvest Hills. They have been given a map of the
emergency routes, which need to be cleared the first day and the other streets after. Using these
numbers, the cost to plow would be $10,000-$12,000 per day and if they have to plow and haul, the
hauling would be an additional $4,000-$4,500 per day. There is a guarantee amount to Knife River for
them to continue to be on call of $50,000 if they are not needed to remove snow.

Klug questioned what was decided regarding 139th and Molstad replied the city would do it up 50th if it is
usable and there is a plan in place where to use Knife River’s services.

Koeser questioned if we need to advertise anything different regarding the city’s snow removal plan and
Meiers responded he didn’t see the need to and he would still do the public service announcements.

MOTION BY CYMBALUK, 2ND BY BOGAR to accept the proposal submitted by Molstad to Knife
River for snow removal.
City Commission Meeting16                                                       November 22, 2011


Meiers commented Knife River does not have snow gates for drive way use, but did say if they received
this contract, they would consider purchasing them for their equipment.

MOTION BY CYMBALUK, 2ND BY BEKKEDAHL to amend to include snow gates for snow
removal.
Klug expressed concern about this holding up the contract, because we need to get someone in place
because the city does not have staff to do this.

MOTION BY CYMBALUK, 2ND BY BEKKEDAHL to withdraw the amendment.

MOTION BY CYMBALUK, 2ND BY BOGAR to withdraw the motion.

MOTION BY CYMBALUK, 2ND BY BOGAR to approve the request presented by Molstad to Knife
River with them also purchasing any necessary snow gates.

               3.      WWTP Update
Meiers presented to the commissioners an updated draft brochure on the WWTP issues, needs, and
improvement proposals prepared by AE2S. This was put together to educate the corp., Health Dept.,
and the state on our funding needs. This brochure talks about the funding necessary, scheduling, a
growing graph for the city and alternatives if the corps plans do not work out.

Koeser asked if anyone had any ideas on how to find out how much the city will grow in the next five
years. Bekkedahl responded there have been two housing studies done in the past five/six years, both
done by the same firm and they were wrong immediately after they were done.

Cymbaluk questioned since the state is laying out our future with issuing oil permits, etc, are they going
to assist us at any level with the treatment plant and Koeser responded yes, but not in the level we
would like.

Koeser expressed his appreciation to Meiers for his work on this project.

             2.      K-9 Vehicle Bid

Lokken updated the commissioners on the K-9 Unit training dog which last year he requested getting
donations for. At that time a budget of $86,000 to $100,000 was determined depending on what kind of
dog, equipment and training could be afforded. As of today, a total of $96,570 has been raised
including 134 different donations, which range from $5 to $16,000. Lokken congratulated Officer Birch
for doing this fundraising on his own time. To get the canine unit up and running, a purchase
agreement has been signed for a dog through a company that handles the Minnesota State Patrol
canine units. This is a drug trained dog already and training the handler to the dog will start January
2nd, when Officer Birch goes to Minnesota. Because of this, we need a specially equipment vehicle to
handle the dog and ride in while he is on duty, so Lokken is requesting to call for bids on a 2012 model
four door, 4 wheel drive police vehicle. These bids would be open December 15th 2PM at City Hall.
The donated approximately $100,000 should supply the department with everything needed for this
training dog for five years.

          I.     Airport
                 1.      Purchase of Auto Repair Building
Kjeergard is requesting to purchase the auto repair building on the airport property. The building was
purchase previously by Frank Garaas from Grenora, who was going to move it, but he cannot find
anyone to do this. Garaas is now looking to sale it and Kjeergard would like to purchase it to be used
for auto rentals. Kjeergard has verbal commitments from the two auto rentals to raise their rents, so
they would have access to this building. Their current leases are 5% of their sales and this would go up
to 8.5% or $600 if the percentage is not that high, but with their current numbers they will be past this.
The cost of the building would be $18,000 plus replacing a couple of heating units, reconnecting all the
utilities and doing some minor adjustments to make sure there is water for the car wash bays.

Klug questioned where are the cars being washed now and Kjeergard replied at one of the local car
washes. Kautzman questioned who will be paying the water bill and Kjeergard replied the airport would
pay all utilities.

Kjeergard informed the commissioners he would have signed written agreements at the next meeting.

Klug questioned if there would have to be more infrastructure put in this building and Kjeergard
responded everything in the building appears to be adequate at this time.

Bogar informed the commissioners this would also give the city an option to clean up around the
property, since this has been an eyesore for a number of years. Kjeergard explained the need for a
parking lot and landscaping also at this sight.

MOTION BY BOGAR, 2ND BY CYMBALUK to authorize the airport manager to proceed with the
purchase of the building along with bringing forth new rental contracts with the car rental
agencies for approval with the increased rates.

Cymbaluk asked if the car rental agencies do not agree with the terms, does Kjeergard still want to buy
the building. Kjeergard responded he could use the building for other things besides a car rental space.

11.    Unfinished Business
       A.     Permission to publish Resolution No. 74 – Bakken Ind. Park Annexation.
Kautzman asked for permission to publish Resolution No. 74 – Bakken Ind Park Annexation for
approximately 687.339 acres to include some lift stations and would exclude the roadways out to it.

Cymbaluk questioned how does the city deal with the man camps and the camper area there.
Kautzman responded this would become a nonconforming use in town and would be added to the list
which the city deals with all the time and Koeser responded this would be dealt with at the public
hearing.

Bekkedahl asked if there are amendments made, does it have to be re-advertised with a new legal
description and Kautzman replied it does if we can’t get the amendments in time for the ad.

Kautzman reminded the commissioners the agreement was to have the sewer line put in by the end of
the year and then it would be reimbursed as long as it was put in per engineer specs. and
requirements.

Bekkedahl questioned Meiers if he could get the information in time to publish it and if he can’t we need
to delay this and Meiers said he could.

Bogar asked how we are going to deal with the fill in annexations to the west in regards to man camps
of companies which are providing staff housing. Are we going to create little islands or are we going to
annex them recognizing their nonconformity and work through the city ordinances and require them as
their permits expire that they move out or bring it into compliance.

Koeser recommended we move forward with advertising this to have the hearing and see if we can
pass this.

MOTION BY KLUG, 2ND BY BEKKEDAHL to advertise Resolution No. 11-74 excluding the
roadways as to the Engineer.

Cymbaluk questioned if Ken and Diane Heen would be notified about this and Kautzman responded
once we move follow, a letter would be sent. They will not have to sign off unless they own 25% or
more of the area, which is what the resolution process allows for.

         B.      Camper Advisement Committee
Cymbaluk explained the committee met last week and they are putting together some different
scenarios. They are hoping to come back to the commissioners in the middle of December with a
recommendation to move forward.
         C.      Airport Funds Request Recommendation
Kjeergard informed the commissioners after a meeting with Kautzman and Bekkedahl; he felt the need
to further describe passenger facility fees. Passenger facility charges are a way for the airport entity to
collect the cost of airport FAA funds. For example, if the city of Williston did an FAA project which costs
a million dollars, the city would only spend 2.5% of this. This is a per ticket fee and it is $4.50 per ticket
and the airlines receive 25 cents as a collection fee and the rest goes back to the airport. However, a
person cannot say they are going to collect the fee; they have to state what the collection of the fee is
for. This is the reason why it takes so long to set up the application process for it. The options for it are
to go back and do all the projects from 1993 and collect the money on this, purchase an piece of
equipment or state we are going to purchase a piece of equipment in the next few years, start collecting
the money and then go that route. There is a time limit on when you can start using this money, which
is two to five years normally. The recommendation was to collect five years of past projects, since KLJ
has a lot of this documentation readily available and at some point in the near future purchasing a piece
of fire rescue equipment.

Bekkedahl continued the committee discussion revolved around they agreed with the passenger fee for
ticketing because this is standard for most airports and he feels the need for the future purchase of the
fire rescue equipment. The discussion was having to place the fee, and then having to purchase the
equipment trying to fund this. They were comfortable with having the commission act favorably on
placing the fee into the system and then allowing these monies to accrue for this future piece of
equipment, which would come back to the commission at that time as it was needed. Kjeergard needs
to designate it is for a piece of fire equipment placing the fee on the ticket at this point.

MOTION BY BEKKEDAHL, 2ND BY CYMBALUK by behalf of the committee, the City Commission
authorize the airport manager to put in place the passenger facility charge and also allow him to
go back on past projects as necessary to collect that charge so we can in future purchase a
designated piece of equipment for the airport, which is fire related at this point and other
previous charges.
