MINUTES OF SPECIAL MEETING
MINNEWAUKAN CITY COUNCIL
May 20, 2005
A special meeting of the Minnewaukan City Council was held Friday, May 20,
2005 at 6 p.m. at the Minnewaukan Library. Present were Mayor Mike Every, Curtis Yri, Mark Motis and Richard Peterson. Claudette Carlson participated in most of the meeting by speakerphone from Albuquerque, NM. In the absence of city auditor Laura Weed, Peterson acted as recording secretary. About 15 people were present, including representatives of The Forum at Fargo and WDAZ-TV. The meeting was called to determine the disposition of two pickups Mayor Every had obtained from North Dakota Surplus Property.
Every began the meeting by apologizing to the gathering for his mistake in obtaining the two pickups through the city and then purchasing them for his own use. Surplus Property rules state that federal property must be retained by municipalities a minimum of 18 months before being disposed of.
Questions on the transaction were asked by Cathy Nord, Sherman Cline and Al Staloch. Allan Nord and Cathy Nord made comments.
Every stated that he regretted the incident but the episode did not “cost the city a nickel.”
During the questioning Every announced that he was resigning and he turned the meeting over to council president Curtis Yri.
After discussion, Peterson moved that the pickups be sent back to ND Surplus Property at Bismarck. Motis seconded. Motion carried.
Every asked that the council accept his resignation. Motis moved to accept the resignation of Mayor Mike Every. Carlson seconded. Roll call vote:
Carlson – yes, Motis – yes, Peterson – no. Motion carried.
The meeting adjourned.
