A motion was made by Lynch and seconded by Peterson to adopt the agenda as presented.  The motion carried unanimously.



The Council conducted consecutive interviews with representatives from Boser Construction, RA Morton, Strack Construction, W. Gohman Construction, and Winkelman Building Corporation.  Each firm presented their qualifications for the project and responded to questions from the Council.


Upon completion of all five interviews, the Council discussed which firm would be best suited to the community center project.  Council members agreed we are fortunate to have many high quality construction firms in Central MN, and so the decision was not easy.  A motion was made by Hennes and seconded by Lynch to select Strack as the project Construction Manager.  The motion carried with Lynch, Hennes and Nicoll in favor and Peterson against.



Upon motion made by Peterson and seconded by Hennes, the Mayor adjourned the meeting at 8:00 pm.
