Animal Rides Permit 05-2017, a re- quest by TRMF for horse-drawn car- riage rides around town, was presented by Kinley Slauter on behalf of TRMF. The certificate of liability insurance was included with the application. Tczap made the motion to approve Animal Rides Permit 05-2017. Second by Joyce. Joyce, aye; Tczap, aye; Bran- num, aye; Slauter abstained. Motion carried. Bonnie Streitz requested permission to hold her annual craft show on the front MCC lawn June 24. Streitz stated that craft shows with 10 or less vendors don't have to file sales tax. Kuntz will check on that. Corneil would like Stre- itz to file a craft show permit with the City Auditor. Joyce made the motion for Streitz to hold her craft show on the MCC lawn contingent on sales tax in- formation from Kuntz being followed. Second by Brannum. Motion carried unanimously. Corneil recommended Bonnie Stre- itz, Pool Manager, receive a 50 cent/hour raise to 17.50/hour. Admis- sion and lesson rates will be un- changed. Tczap made the motion to raise Streitz's pay to 17.50/hour. Sec- ond by Joyce. Motion carried unani- mously. A Transient Merchant application from Tyler & Karl Roller aka Kettle Corn Vending was reviewed. A letter from the property owner where the vendor was planning on setting up was also re- viewed. Tczap made the motion to de- cline the application because of the property owner's refusal. Second by Joyce. Motion carried unanimously. There was further discussion regarding raising the application fee or possibly only allowing vendors to come in when there is a special community event such as Cowboy Christmas. After further dis- cussion, Kuntz recommended that the CVB and Chamber be contacted to bring feedback to the July meeting. Randy Hatzenbuhler with TRMF ad- dressed the Council regarding the Foundation's desire to move the Nabor's man camp from Williston to Medora. They are looking to acquire 340-400 rooms to replace the Bunkhouse and add additional em- ployee housing. Randy introduced the Project Manager, Jack Markort. This is still an unsecured project. They are asking for conditional approval from the City and it still needs to be approved by the TRMF Board. Conditional approval would allow them to submit a Zoning Application for the June 20 meeting. They will also be asking for a property tax exemption. Kuntz stated the City has never taken the option of property tax exemptions to the vote of the people as is required. PILT would be another option. Kuntz will research this further. Corneil stated his concerns regarding lagoon capacity. Njos added that since the facilities study was done a few years ago, things have been repaired and improved. They are being man- aged well now, but he recommends that a specialist come in and look at the fa- cility to find out the capacity. Corneil added that the project is a great idea, but he is concerned about the city in- frastructure. A clear answer regarding the net increase of room capacity was not presented. There was discussion about Slauter having a conflict of inter- est. Kuntz stated it is a conflict for him to vote on both Council and Zoning, but he could bring discussion to the table. Council recommends this be viewed as 2 separate projects; the Bunkhouse project and the housing next to the Life Skills Center. This would require 2 sep- arate zoning applications. Tczap made the motion to offer a vote of confidence to move forward with the TRMF lodg- ing/housing project contingent on la- goon capacity and infrastructure needs. Second by Brannum. Discussion; Jim Bridger and Ben Brannum understand they are conflicted to vote on the Zoning Board regarding this project. Corneil added that he does not think employees of TRMF should be allowed to vote. Tczap added that if someone abstains they must state a reason. Corneil re- quested that Kuntz and Njos attend the June 20 Zoning Board meeting. A zon- ing denial can be appealed to City Council. Joyce, aye; Tczap, aye; Bran- num, aye; Slauter, abstained. Motion carried. Per NDCC 40-13-02, Slauter made the motion to confirm the bond of the City Auditor. Second by Tczap. Motion carried unanimously. Under Misc. Business, a letter of in- tent to participate in the Multi Hazard Mitigation Plan from Billings County Emergency Manager Pat Rummel was reviewed. If the grant is not approved for this plan the County and City will not participate. Brannum made the motion to enter into the Multi Hazard Mitigation Plan agreement with Billings County. Second by Joyce. Motion carried unan- imously. Slauter asked Kuntz where the City is with the damage that was done to the playground. Kuntz has estimates and should have a long form complaint by next week. Slauter also asked if the railroad should have given the City an official notice when they had the tracks shut down for repairs. Steffen will try to reach our regional rep. to see if there could be better protocol in the future. Joyce made the motion to approve the financials. Second by Brannum.
