He has called the company and expects a response shortly. Per Mr. Gerald Reule’s request, the city has researched the fire hydrant heights and snow removal requirements. The fire department is equipped and trained to use pumper trucks. In addition, the East Central Regional Water District indicated that they do not utilize the hydrants either. Therefore, height and snow removal are a non-issue. No action will be taken at this time. The City Engineer and the City Attorney have not had an opportunity to meet to draft a load limit permit. Council member Hughes presented an option of requiring all axles to be down when driving on city streets. Council concurred. Council member Hughes inquired as to how the roads were built. Public Works indicated that on paper, they were all built the same. However, the actual work was inconsistent. Public Works was also asked to review the current ordinance to ensure the truck route is accurate. The City Administrator will contact the City Attorney to inquire if a map depicting the truck route can be included in the ordinance or if another placement would be more appropriate. Council member Bergeron asked what the spending options were for the ARPA and Prairie Dog Funds. At this point, the plan is to use both towards the sewer project. There are other options for the ARPA funds, but they require additional reporting and proof of economic hardship. Mayor Larimer informed the council that he had received an invitation to Governor Burgum’s MainStreet Summit in Fargo. He is unable to attend but offered the council members his ticket. The council requested that the City Administrator attend. In addition, Mayor Larimer asked the council to compile and prioritize a project list. He would like to focus on one item at a time so each project receives proper attention and is completed in a timely manner. Council member Fretheim motioned to adjourn. Council member Hughes seconded the motion. All said aye. The motion carried. _______________________ Barb Robinson, Auditor _______________________ Dean Larimer, Mayor (Jan. 12, 2022) 21808

GRAND FORKS COUNTY SPECIAL COMMISSION MEETING December 21, 2021 – 2:30pm Action Items: Opioid Litigation Settlement The Board met pursuant to adjournment with Commissioners Pic, Falck, Engen, Rost and Knauf present. Matthew McCarly,Nachawati Law Firm, attorney representing Grand Forks County, and Parrell Grossman and Elin Alm from the ND Attorney General Office Consumer Protection & Antitrust Division were also in attendance. Haley Wamstad, State’s Attorney, said the question for the board is whether or not Grand Forks County wishes to opt into the opioid settlement that is available at this time. The deadline to opt in is January 2, 2022. Ms. Wamstad said if the meeting goes into executive session, Parrell Grossman and Elin Alm are representing the State of North Dakota and not Grand Forks County, so they cannot be part of the executive session. She said they are here today to answer any questions you may have. Matthew McCarly, Nachawati Law Firm, attorney representing Grand Forks County in the Opioid Litigation explained the details of the settlement. He said a settlement has been reached with four of the defendants in the litigation, three distributors AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health, McKesson, which is all contained in one agreement with payoff terms over 18 years. The other settlement is with Janssen, a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson and that settlement payoff is over 8 years. The combined settlement total for the Country is up to $26 billion. The default allocation for the settlement funds would be 15% or approximately $360,000 for Grand Forks County, 70% for the abatement fund, which Grand Forks County could apply to the State for, and 15% for the State. Parrell Grossman, ND Attorney General’s Office, said the State will include their 15% allocation with the 70% abatement fund for remediation. Commissioner Falck asked Mr. Grossman if the abatement fund would be controlled by the State. Mr. Grossman said the 70% would be controlled by the State, but it would likely be a committee would make recommendations on the use of abatement funds. Moved by Rost, seconded by Falck, to recess for a closed executive session, pursuant to NDCC 44-04-19.1 and 44-04-19.2 for attorney consultation regarding the opioid litigation settlement. Motion carried unanimously. It was 2:42pm. Moved by Rost, seconded by Falck, to adjourn the executive session and reconvene the regular meeting. Motion carried. It was 3:02pm. Moved by Falck, seconded by Rost, to allow the Nachawati Law Firm to submit a participation agreement on behalf of Grand Forks County to participate in a settlement between AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health, McKesson and Janssen. Motion carried unanimously. Moved by Falck, seconded by Knauf, to adjourn. Motion carried unanimously. _____________________________ Thomas H. Falck, Chair Grand Forks County Commission _____________________________ Debbie Nelson, County Auditor (Jan. 12, 2022) 21803
