Grand Forks and East Grand Forks City Councils will meet in a joint meeting on July 11 to talk about infrastructure projects and a possible intercity bridge.
The event takes the same form as the television show of the same name.
Members of the Chamber’s Business Government Education Alliance Committee met to hear about UND’s development of a new strategic plan, likely to be unveiled at the end of 2022. Committee members wondered how that plan would include priorities of the Legislature, at a time when legislative leadership is set to change. Committee members discussed what a conservatives twist to the Legislature could have for both higher and K-12 education.

Team Grand Forks’ goal is to create a unified front to present the region’s lawmaking goals to the Legislature. And while the most recent sesion didn’t meet those goals entirely, the city, county and other partners say they fared well, legislatively speaking, including funding for several unmanned aerial systems programs, UND programs foreshadowing participation with the U.S. Space Force, and expanded funding for rural and city fire departments.
The program got off the ground six years ago, when Wilfahrt was watching Shark Tank on TV with his wife Kristi, who thought of holding a local version of the event. Wilfahrt took the idea to the Chamber, and it has been an annual event ever since.
The forum will be held from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 6, at the Red River High School auditorium. The event will be livestreamed by the school district.
