BUSH FOUNDATION COMMUNITY INNOVATION GRANT (G&A016)
Over the last few years, a national crisis has begun to hit home in the Magic City: the opioid epidemic. It is impacting our families, friends, and community members. The City of Minot has been awarded a grant from the Bush Foundation for $208,000 to be used towards fighting this epidemic. The agreement had previously been approved by City Council to be signed on March 5th 2018.
It is recommended the council pass the ordinance to amend the 2018 budget to increase revenue and expenditures in Admin & General due to receiving the Bush Foundation Community Innovation Grant to fight the opioid epidemic; and authorize the Mayor to sign the budget amendment.
