Hillsboro, ND –The Hillsboro Commission held their regular scheduled bi-monthly meeting Monday evening at the Main Street Community Center. During the meeting the board clarified a previous motion made by Vice president Levi Reese that will allow people to talk at designated times during future meetings. The public will have designated five minute periods during old business, new business, and the conclusion of the meeting to voice their concerns, with the possibility for the time to be extended at the discretion of city commission President Terry Sando. Sando says they want to have input from the public but don’t want meetings to get out of hand or to take a long time.

Also, the commission approved spending roughly $3500 a year for 3 years on a new website, Sando said the new website will be ADA compliant and more user friendly. 

Additionally the city approved to give Mike Kress the contract for moving the city cemetery, with the board agreeing to big out the contract for a 3 year period for 2022-2025. Sando said this will allow the city to have their moving and snow removal contracts on the same 3 year bidding cycle.

In other business the board approved the renewal of their IT contract with Remark Technology Consulting, agreed to put a barrier around the city Orchard to prevent snowmobiles from potentially damaging the area, and approved a new two page Excel spreadsheet for evaluating city employees. Also, Auditor Ashley Frederick said she is working with Olsen’s hardware  to fix a software issue affecting the cities digital sign at the Railroad Park. The next scheduled city commission meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 18
