City Council meets for work session

The Bemidji City Council is scheduled to discuss several items during their work session this evening.

They will first hear a recreation update, then move on to a Greater Bemidji discussion.

Recently, Greater Bemidji declined to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the city council, citing in a response letter that such an agreement would give the city more say than the other investors in the economic development nonprofit. 

Greater Bemidji submitted an application for $30,000 in city funds, resembling the application process Beltrami County uses for community development fund distribution.

The council is then scheduled to discuss the airport authority before adjourning.
