History

Minot came into existence in 1886, when Jim Hill's Great Northern Railroad ended its push through the state for the winter, after having trouble constructing a trestle across Gassman Coulee. A tent town sprung up over night, as if by "magic", thus the city came to be known as the Magic City, and in the next 5 months, the population increased to over 5,000 residents, further adding to the nickname's validity.

Policy

Minot's civic realm includes a number of debates over taxes, fiscal management, and economic development policy.


Major issues include:


Economic development

Main articles: MAGIC Fund (Minot) and MAGIC Fund

In recent years, economic development has become a significant issue in the city of Minot. The city created the publicly-financed MAGIC Fund in 1992 to provide financial incentives for businesses, but a series of debacles made the operations of the fund a significant issue in the 2002 city elections. The MAGIC Fund is a special tax fund called the created in 1992 by the city of Minot, North Dakota to provide public subsidies to businesses to start operations in Minot for the purpose of economic development. ...

Year 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (link will display full 1992 Gregorian calendar). ... Also see: 2002 (number). ...


Northwest Area Water Supply (NAWS)

The Northwest Area Water Supply is slightly less controversial among residents of Minot and area, however, it has attracted the ire of the Canadian government because the plan calls for water to be pumped from Lake Sakakawea, then to Minot for treatment, and then on to large stretches of Northwest North Dakota. The Northwest Area Water Supply (NAWS), also referred to as Garrison Diversion (from the Garrison Dam), is a project to divert water from Lake Sakakawea to the area around Minot, North Dakota, which is in the Souris River watershed. ... Lake Sakakawea is a reservoir on the Missouri River. ...


Minot voters decided in 1998 to levy a 1% sales tax to go towards the construction of NAWS; this tax fund was found in court to have been illegally diverted towards economic development purposes. A lawsuit was filed against the city and it was ordered to return the misappropriated funds to the NAWS fund. By that time, the money had already been spent, and the city instead voted to issue a special assessment on city water bills to raise the funds. Year 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday (link will display full 1998 Gregorian calendar). ...


NAWS may be a moot point as water levels in Lake Sakakawea continue to fall; it is possible that not enough water will be available for use when the project is complete.


Economy

Minot's economy thrives on the Air Force Base located 13 miles north of town making the city's economy more robust than other cities of its size due to its large service area; however, it is beset by significant problems with enterprise capital and wage standards. About 30% of Minot residents work two or more jobs, and two-thirds of households earn less than the national median household income.


A Coldwell Banker Home Price Comparison Index listed Minot as the most affordable area of 348 markets in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico for homebuyers.[4]
