3. Bid Openings

A.         Williston Public Library Roof Replacement


There were three bids received for the Williston Public Library Roof Replacement. They were as follows:

Target Roofing Devils Lake, ND $141,550.00

Thiel Brothers Roofing, Inc Sidney, MT $110,000.00

Jessen Roofing, Inc Minot, ND $113,750.00


Kautzman mentioned that these bids were considerably lower than what was originally estimated, but much higher than the City of Williston had hoped for. There is no budget for the roof, but it needs to be completely replaced. The roof is leaking and there are tiles coming down in certain areas of the library. There will be money available in the sales tax area, but another option would be to use the City Building Fund. Currently there is not enough money in that fund, but if the City Commissioners and the Budget Committee agree the levy could be increased to the maximum, and they could basically do an inter-fund loan.
Bekkedahl mentioned that from a budgetary standpoint it is nice to keep the expense in a building fund and be able to see it and track it from year to year.

MOTION BY BEKKEDAHL, 2ND BY LAWSON, to accept the low bid of $110,000.00 from Thiel Brothers Roofing, Inc out of Sidney, MT for the Library Roof Replacement, charge to the Building Fund and access with the Budget Committee later.

4. Public Hearings

President Koeser asked the commission to consider running the hearings for 4A and 4B together, because they are for the same lot and inter-related. There were no objections.
Koeser opened the public hearing.

A. Proposed Amendment to the Future Land Use Plan from Industrial Classification to Residential for Lots 4&5, Block 1, Jim Bridger Subdivision- Community Development, Inc

B. Proposed Zone change from M-3: Industrial Park to R-3: Low-rise, Multi-Family & Townhouse Residential for Lots 4 & 5, Block 1, Jim Bridger Subdivision- Community Development, Inc.
Koeser received a letter from Catherine Webb suggesting that what we needed in town was homes in the mid-range, not the low cost housing. She believed that people in town were more in need of individual homes.
Planning and Zoning recommendation is to approve to the Proposed Amendment to the Future Land Use Plan from Industrial Classification to Residential for Lots 4 & 5, Block, 1, Jim Bridger Subdivision - Community Development, Inc and to approve the Proposed Zone change from M-3: Industrial Park to R-3: Low-rise, Multi-Family & Townhouse Residential for Lots 4 & 5, Block 1, Jim Bridger Subdivision- Community Development, Inc.
Bekkedahl asked if there is a provision for fencing from their development or would we be responsible for fencing for future public works development if we had something to go in that property. Jarcik thought they should provide their own fence, along with some trees to buffer that area.

Koeser called for any public input.


Koeser closed the public hearing.

C. Proposed Zone change from A: Agricultural to M-1: Light Industrial of an unplatted parcel located in Section 19, T154N, R100W, City of Williston – Tofte

Mayor Koeser opened the public hearing.


Rick Tofte, from Tofte Brothers Construction, owns the land to the north and east of this parcel and would like to have it changed back to M-1: Light Industrial instead of agricultural so that he can expand the storage units he has in the next lot. He is proposing building three storage buildings, one 20 X 200 and two that are 40 X 200.
Jarcik added that he had spoke to Tofte and he wasn’t opposed to doing some landscaping near the storage units.
Koeser called for any public input.
Koeser closed the public hearing.

Chief Lokken mentioned this ordinance would allow Williston to keep up with the changes made by the State of North Dakota regarding hours and dates of liquor sales.
The hours prohibit sales of alcoholic beverages from the hours of 1am to 12 noon on Sundays and the hours of 1am and 8am on all other days of the week. This would also prohibit sales from 6pm on Christmas Eve through Christmas Day, and after 1am on Thanksgiving Day. Those violating this Ordinance would be guilty of a Class B misdemeanor.

B. First Reading of Ordinance No. 909, An Ordinance granting to Montana Dakota Utilities Co., a division of MDU Resources Group, Inc., a Corporation, it’s successors and assigns, the franchise and right to construct, maintain and operate within and upon, in and under the streets, alleys, and public grounds of the City of Williston, North Dakota, a gas distribution system for transmitting and distributing natural or manufactured gas, or a mixture of both, for public and private use.
The franchise committee was reviewing this Ordinance. They have been working on this for some time. Basically there are two separate ordinances and a Franchise Supplemental Agreement would be approved with each Ordinance. The supplemental agreement was one the City of Williston worked out with MDU in regards to cost sharing.
Bekkedahl stated that he appreciated Doug Dixon from MDU in helping with the process. At MDU’s request, they separated the ordinance into and electrical and a gas ordinance, mirroring what they have done in Bismarck. Once the change was made, the committee came back together again and would recommend approval as submitted.
Bekkedahl mentioned that they did increase the insurance requirement from $500,000 to a one million dollars and MDU has agreed to that. Also it will remain a twenty year franchise, but the City of Williston reserves the right to review this agreement with the grantee every five years.

2. Star Fund Report

3. United Pulse Pace Buydown


Mayor Koeser stated the Star Fund Report is tied to the United Pulse Pace Buydown. Tom Rolfstad said that the pulse industry is related to peas and lentils. They are something that we did not have in this area ten years ago, but today from here to Canada, if you would look at the crops from the air, you wouldn’t see the traditional rotation of wheat and fallow. You would see wheat and pulse crops. The reason for the change is that the pulse crops grow well in the fallow year, they fixate nitrogen back into the soil, and they give the farmers an income every year on all their acreage. The biggest benefit is on the farm, but it is also nice to have the real estate of the facility in town and the employment opportunities. United Pulse buying out Superior Grains makes them a financially solid, major player. They are in a good place to move forward and set up themselves up for some growth.
Eric Bartsch, the Director of the Northern Plains Pulse Group, was hired by United Pulse to manage the facility here. He travels between Williston and Bismarck, and has been spending quite a bit of time here in Williston.
Bartsch said that United Pulse Trading is fairly new to the United States. They had purchased this facility last July and is well known world wide. They have seven facilities in Canada, one in Australia, and market to over 85 countries throughout the world. Williston is at the center of the pulse production for the United States. Within the Williston region you have between 75 to 80% of the pea and lentil production for the United States, so it makes sense to expand the opportunities in the region and base this company in the Williston area. When the facility was purchased in July, tremendous upgrades were made. They added more value added processing, more capacity, and introduced some new technology. Currently in Williston they have the capability to process and ship whole peas, ability to make both yellow and green split peas, and are also one of the world’s largest suppliers of lentils. They will also be introducing the red lentil to this region, which is the form in which 85% of lentils are consumed worldwide.
Koeser asked where this product is shipped to. Bartsch said it depended on what type of lentils and peas they have, but they ship to many areas of the world, including the Middle East, North Africa, India, and Latin America.
United Pulse is really a value added processing company. It takes the product from the farmer and puts it in a form the consumer wants.
In looking at expansion of the facility there are a few things really limiting the company, one being the output of the product. Currently there is one rail track that runs right beside the facility. They are able to load box cars of bagged product there. They are proposing laying another track at the facility which would allow them to load both box cars and hopper cars. This would double the capacity of the facility, because the cars could be loaded simultaneously. In the last year they processed 50 to 60 thousand tons, but with this expansion they would be looking at exceeding 100 thousand tons for the 2008-2009 marketing years. The majority of the quotes for the work have been received and they don’t anticipate it costing more than $800,000.00 for the total project.
Unknown asked about the number of hopper cars on the facility at any given time. Bartsch responded that this is one of the issues limiting their output, because the facility is generally filled with the box cars, not allowing for use of many hopper cars. They are anticipating loading two hopper cars a day which is about 180 tons. The railroad has an agreement with United Pulse and has agreed to service the plant and has approved the rail track expansion.

Currently the facility employs 24 people in Williston.


United Pulse is proposing purchasing the lot to the northwest of the facility as well as the lot to the east of the warehouse. In looking at those areas, it allows for expansion of the warehouse. It would also allow room for more storage and additional facilities.
Rolfstad stated that the land they are looking at is just about seven acres and United Pulse is offering $100,000.00 . Traditionally they have been selling the non-rail at 15 and the rail at 20. These acres would not be serviceable by rail to anyone other than United Pulse, so he cannot see asking more than 15. The interest buy-down on the loan would be $63,000.00. We would need to review the rail agreements.
Bartsch stated the railroad would be responsible for pushing the empty cars onto one track and they would be responsible for pushing the hopper and box cars onto the two separate tracks. Once the cars are full they would put the cars on the track east of the facility. The railroad’s main concern is keeping the main track from being blocked. United Pulse has the same concern, being it would halt output of the product.
Rolfstad said that they are working with the railroad as far as the completion of the Industrial Park and they feel that this project is pretty much ready to go. They would like to get construction going this fall.
Koeser said in the past when they have approved these issues they have made the approval contingent upon review by the City Attorney.
Bekkedahl asked if all four issues pertaining to this could be dealt with in one motion. Koeser consulted with Furuseth, who had no issue with it as long as enough detail was given in the motion.

Meiers thought there might be issues with BNSF. The rails are set up as a one way street and are not exclusively set up for a business’s use. As far as setting us exclusive use of the rail, Meiers feels the City of Williston does not have authority to do that. Ownership goes to the middle of the rail, and then there is a rail easement of 25 feet on each side. BSNF wants a slightly different curve, which would require a 27 foot easement. Meiers suggested that allowing the exclusive use of the rail on the city’s property with a 40 foot of rail easement on the property would be a possibility. He feels the City of Williston does not have the authority to allow exclusive use of the existing line that goes along there.


Rolfstad disagreed with Meiers and thought the City of Williston would have authority to do that because the use would be of the easement, not the land. The land ownership is a separate issue that the easement.
Meiers asked Bartsch if he needed exclusive use of the existing line if he had the ability to get his cars in and out and have a rail paralleling it.
Bartsch said he doesn’t want to have someone setting ten cars on the track and leaving them there for a week. The main concern is running into an issue where they are blocked from using the line.
Meiers thought we could continue by giving United Pulse the OK for the additional land, so they could set their switch in the rail. BNSF would not allow other companies to set cars on the track and impair the business of United Pulse.
MOTION BY BEKKEDAHL, 2ND BY LAWSON, to approve a package for the retention and expansion for United Pulse of Williston to include:

1. The purchase of Lot 3, approximately 5.02 acres of Block 4, and Lot 3, approximately 1.95 acres of Block 1 of the Industrial Park, for the purchase price of $100,000 inclusive for both lots.

2. An interest Buydown on an $800,000.00 pace loan with a local share match up to $63,000.00.

3. An easement to allow greater curve, subject to concurrence and measure by an attorney for the second track as recommended by the attorney, for the area up to a 40 foot distance from the center of the existing track.

4. To review the track agreements with BNSF, the City of Williston, United Pulse, and Rick Vestal to ensure smooth operations to be negotiated by the attorneys, the economic developer, and parties involved, with that review and track agreements to come back to the City of Williston for final approval.

Bartsch wanted to inform the board that they are a publically traded company, so once the land purchase is approved, it will need final approval from their Board of Trustees. He does not anticipate an issue, but wanted to make that stipulation clear.


Koeser mentioned that this opportunity is exciting for Williston. He feels it in nice to have other opportunities than oil in the community.

1. Plumbing Code


Monte Meiers said there had been a meeting held to discuss the four options discussed previously in commission meetings, which are:
1. Require the expensive backflow preventers to safe guard ourselves

2. License all sprinkler installers to have authority over them

3. Make all sprinkler installers who make the connection for the adaptors to the system be licensed as pesticide applicators

4. Do not allow any chemical connections to the public system.

The recommendation from the committee is not to allow any chemical connections onto the public water system.

Koeser asked what the other cities do.

Meiers isn’t necessarily opposed to them, but the problem is regulating them and safe guarding the public system. He looked back in his files and the recommendation of the State Health Department was not to allow them.
MOTION BY LAWSON, 2ND BY BOGAR, to not allow chemical injections to be put onto the public systems. The public pools would be of industrial nature and could be allowed through a building permit.

2. Alley Grading Resolutions
Meiers said alley access needs to be developed where the new single family homes are being developed over by the Western Star Complex. The problem is that many of the residents of these homes do not the alley to be developed. They feel it will just be a thoroughfare for those watching softball games and people parking back there. The problem is getting a garbage truck in there and turned around which requires 80 feet. Parks and Recreation agreed to give some easement to do a turn-around. They would develop a cul-de-sac which would allow room for the truck to turn around, and not develop the rest of the alley. He put together an engineering report along with a resolution. The Park Board would agree to this and would sign off on it.
Bekkedahl asked who would be responsible for maintaining the weeds in the undeveloped alley property. Meiers said that the property owner would be responsible, much like they are responsible for the boulevards.
3. Private Lot Mowing
Meiers mentioned that there are seventy-five private lots that Public Works is mowing and feels that we are not charging enough to cover the costs to the City of Williston. He is requesting a minimum of a $100.00 administrative fee just to start the process. He feels that having the city mow the yard is too easy and we should be doing what we can to make it a disincentive rather than an incentive.
Bekkedahl asked whether this is better to do as an Ordinance or Resolution. Furuseth would rather do it as an Ordinance.
