Bemidji City Council: Depot lease up for discussion

BEMIDJI – The lease of the Great Northern Depot with the Beltrami County Historical Society will be up for discussion Monday night.

The council will be presented with a revised lease from city staff, which focuses on defining a “major” repair.

The revised lease states that a major repair, which are the responsibilities of the city, costs more than $500 and wasn’t caused by a lack of routine maintenance.

The council will also consider a resolution supporting legislation that establishes improvement districts to help fund municipal street maintenance.
