Moved by Falck, seconded by Knauf, to approve the ICS change order with Chair's signature, removing from the scope of work the COB 1st Floor South glass removal and the HVAC Improvements for the 1st Floor South COVID Safety Improvement Project. The change order is a $4,993 deduction. Motion carried unanimously.
Moved by Rost, seconded by Falck, to appoint Peter Kuhn to a five-year term on the City Planning Commission, beginning August 5, 2021. Motion carried unanimously.
Sheriff Schneider addressed the board.
Moved by Rost, seconded by Falck, to approve the Interlocal Agreement between Grand Forks City and Grand Forks County for the 2021 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant with Chair's signature. Motion carried unanimously.
State's Attorney Haley Wamstad said regarding the Inmate Communication Proposals, a party that is aggrieved by the board's decision has a right to appeal to District Court within 30 days after the decision and it is their burden to show the board acted arbitrary or capricious in their decision making.
Bret Burkholder, Correctional Center Administrator, said upon additional review, it is the continued recommendation of the Inmate Communication Review Committee to recommend HomeWav.
Haley Wamstad, State's Attorney, said because the Commission has accepted an Inmate Communication Proposal as the lowest responsible bidder, if the board elects to change the decision that has been made, it would be best to point to the factors for the change of decision as part of the rational mental process.
No change was made to the motion made on June 15, 2021 accepting the proposal from Homewav for inmate communications.
Moved by Falck, seconded by Rost, to approve the Chair's signature on the following NE Human Service Center Amendment to Lease Agreements, #940-11284 and #940-11277.

Debbie Nelson, Finance and Tax Director, addressed the board.
Moved by Rost, seconded by Falck, to set the interim fund to 10% for all levied funds, except the general fund, road fund and pass-through funds for budgeting purposes. Motion carried unanimously.
Moved by Rost, seconded by Falck, to purchase a silent auction item for the ND Emergency Management Association Conference for up to $100. Motion carried unanimously.
Motion by Rost, seconded by Falck, to adjourn. Motion carried unanimously. The meeting adjourned at 4:47 pm. The next meeting will be held on August 3, 2021 at 4:00pm.
