Bemidji City Council to hold first reading of new rental ordinance, hear update on Rail Corridor
The Bemidji City Council will hear the first reading of a new rental ordinance during its meeting on Monday, Oct. 17, along with an update on the proposed Rail Corridor Wellness Center.
BEMIDJI — Included in the Bemidji City Council’s agenda for its meeting Monday, Oct. 17, is the first reading of a new rental ordinance for the city.
The proposed ordinance, which comes from a revision process started over a year ago, would update the city’s rental code, permitting process and enforcement measures. The last time Bemidji’s rental ordinance was adjusted was in 2011.
Also included in tonight’s meeting is a public hearing on proposed assessments for the 2022 Street Renewal Project.
Property owners along the reconstructed streets have been informed of their assessment amount and will have the opportunity to appeal once the council sets an assessment hearing.
The council will also hear an update on the proposed Railroad Corridor Wellness Center.
The update will include fundraising progress made by Greater Bemidji, along with the results of community listening sessions held by Sanford Health.
The city council meeting will take place at 6 p.m. tonight, Oct. 17, at City Hall. The meeting can also be viewed on the city's website, www.ci.bemidji.mn.us.
