The Minot City Council approved a restructuring plan.

A reorganization proposal that would separate the City of Minot’s Public Works Department and create a position for an assistant city manager to oversee public works and engineering was adopted by the Minot City Council on Friday in an effort to enhance city operations.

The council overwhelmingly agreed to adopt City Manager Harold Stewart’s proposal to establish a Utilities Department to manage water and landfill services while keeping the Public Works Department in charge of maintaining roadways, storm sewers, cemeteries, transportation, and property. The Engineering Department would take on all engineering-related duties. The assistant city manager would receive reports from the heads of all three departments.

Stewart emphasized the Public Works Department’s voluminous workload. Currently, the agency consumes more than 40% of the city’s budget. More than 30% of the company’s workforce is made up of its 166 full-time equivalent workers.

Jonasson said, “I don’t argue that we need an assistant city manager. I don’t think we need one just to oversee Public Works and Engineering. I think that’s being coordinated very well, and we have done a great job of that, improving that over the last 10 years”.

Stewart claimed that even with the restructure, succession planning could still be done. He stated that internal candidates will be accepted for the job of assistant city manager.

Because of the chance to partially offset the cost with user fees in enterprise funds as well as the general fund, the restructure is seen as a method to hire that assistant manager, who is anticipated to cost between $150,000 and $170,000, plus perks. According to Stewart, the managerial employee should be delivering management in that service area to justify the usage of company finances.
