Council to discuss contracts during meeting Monday

The Bemidji City Council will virtually meet again this Monday. According to the agenda, citizens with business can submit their comments before 3 p.m. Monday via email to the city clerk.

Under new business, the council will consider a couple of contracts.

The first contract, between DEED and the city, is for a small cities development program. The city was awarded over $388,000 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

This funding, according to a memo from City Manager Nate Mathews, will be used in the rehabilitation of single-family occupied housing in an area just west of downtown. Residents of the area were contacted about the program last year, and a public hearing was held this past February.

The city will also consider contracting for services with the Headwaters Regional Development Commission, with cost of services around $50,000, which could be paid through the grant. HRDC will implement and manage the grant, according to the memo.
