APPOINTED COUNCILOR               Joe Schwartz, Chair of the Recreation Commission,
JAKSA TO RECREATION               reported on the need for review of the joint powers
COMMISSION                        agreement which authorizes the activities of the
                                  commission. He stated that the review would occur
                                  during the commission’s meeting of August 20 and asked
                                  that the city administrator and council members on the

                                  Koochiching County denied the commission’s request for

                                  programs. Mayor Mason asked Councilor Jaksa to serve

AUTHORIZED FOOTBALL    Motion by Councilor McBride to approve advertisement
BOOSTER CLUB AD        in FHS Football Booster Club football program guide at a
                       cost of $80. Motion seconded by Councilor Eklund and
                       carried unanimously.

REDUCED DEDICATED      Councilor McBride stated that the city presently has
FUNDING FOR KEDA       $50,000 per year dedicated to funding for the
                       Koochiching Economic Development Authority and he
                       believed that this amount should be reduced by $25,000 to
                       match the reduced funding decision recently made by
                       Koochiching County. He stated that this action should not
                       be viewed as lack of commitment to the partnership.
                       Motion by Councilor McBride to reduce by $25,000 2008
                       funding to KEDA. Motion seconded by Councilor
                       Rognerud and carried unanimously.

AUTHORIZED REQUESTS    Mayor Mason stated her belief that the city should
FOR PROPOSALS FROM     increase the resources dedicated to economic
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT   development. She said that the KEDA had recently
SEARCH FIRMS           sought and reviewed proposals for economic development
                       search firms but had ultimately determined not to pursue
                       use of a search firm. She noted that the city’s strategic
                       plan indicates the city can make a determination to devote
                       resources to an economic development initiative when
                       KEDA is not able to do so and she supports engagement
                       of a search firm to increase economic development
                       opportunities. She said that from her participation in the
                       KEDA review she is satisfied that a good firm was
                       identified but would like other councilors to have the
                       opportunity to review proposals. Motion by Councilor
                       McBride to invite two firms to present proposals to the
                       city. Motion seconded by Councilor Rognerud and
                       carried unanimously.
