Bemidji City Council rejects grant for solar energy panels
Due to a combination of funding and timing concerns, the Bemidji City Council voted unanimously Monday to reject a $100,000 grant that would have helped to fund solar energy panels at The Sanford Center.
The grant came with a requirement for a $160,200 local match.
The council had been planning to wait to decide on the grant until February, when the final amount of contingency funds for the construction of The Sanford Center would be known.
