More Approval Needed for Revitalization Project

Posted: Updated:

Last week, Minot's City Council approved the plans and specs for the project, aimed at improving infrastructure in the downtown area.

However, there are still more approvals needed before the city can put bids out for the project.

"Because there's 18 million dollars of EDA grant funding, and that's a federal agency, they have to review the plans and and specs, as well as, we have to ensure that all the easements and permits have been obtained," says project manager Dave O'Shea. "So, once they've completed their review, they'll provide the city a letter of approval to go to bid. So, until that letter is obtained," he adds.

Since part of the project involves water pipes that provide drinking water, the state health department must also approve the plans and specs.

However, this does not affect whether or not the project goes to bidders.
