Bigfork City Council takes care of business

The Bigfork City Council met on June 13 for their regular monthly meeting. Mayor Amy Pifher, Andrew Francisco and Peter Johnson were present, along with Clerk Angie Storlie. Councilmen Benjamin Maxa and Eric Storlie and not at the table. Joe Zimmer and Aaron Gould were in the audience.

Mayor Pifher called the meeting to order at 6:06 p.m.

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited and Pifher opened the public forum. Pifher noted that the City had heard a concern from a resident regarding the process used to sell the city-owned property located at 500 Cedar Street. This parcel had been acquired from Itasca County through the tax-forfeiture process with the understanding that Habitat for Humanity would be purchasing it from the City. After the City purchased it, Habitat determined they could not use it. It was the Council’s desire to resell the property as quickly as possible rather than risk being responsible for clean-up of it. It was stated in the April City Council minutes that the City would be attempting to sell the property. The Council did not advertise in the newspaper but would have considered doing so had a bid not been received on the property right away.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.
