Mahnomen, MN — The Mahnomen City Council held their first regular monthly meeting on Monday night, November 2nd. At the meeting, the council accepted a CARES Act donation from the surrounding Pembina township. Mahnomen City Administrator Mitch Berg says they will use those funds, totaling over $9,000, for Fire Department and Public Works expenses.

In recent months, the council had been discussing their ordinances relating to service station, auto and recreational vehicle sales, and storage lot construction. However, they now feel that their current ordinances are sufficient, but perhaps a bigger concern may soon be parking in the downtown, according to Berg.

Good news for the city of Mahnomen out of the state legislature’s bonding bill that was passed last month. Berg says part of that bonding bill is nearly two million dollars in infrastructure funding for the city.

And Berg says the city is in the final stages of a grant application for an emergency generator to power their water treatment facility.

The Mahnomen City Council also approved the purchase of a new camera system for the Lucky Seven Liquor Store.
