The third time was the charm for the GreenSteps program.

After twice before considering the program, the Bemidji City Council Monday unanimously voted to sign the city on to the GreenStep Cities program, a voluntary program that offers assistance and recognition to cities to help them reach sustainability goals.

In other business, the council voted unanimously to select Brauer and Associates as the consultant to lead the upcoming redesign of the Lake Bemidji waterfront at a cost of about $16,000, substantially less than the other proposal from Kimley-Horn for $52,000.

The council also voted to table a decision on the councilors who will represent the city in upcoming annexation negotiations with Bemidji and Northern townships.
