At the Perham City Council's monthly meeting Monday, Jan. 13:

  • The council approved the Golf Course Management Services Agreement allowing for a third private party to take on the running of the golf course's restaurant, bar and pro shop. The agreement is valid for three years, with the purpose of helping to pay off some of the golf course debts. After the private party has recouped its investment, nearly 8% of profits will go back to the city for this purpose. The city will still be approving the rates at the golf course.

  • The council approved a height variance for the Arvig building. Arvig made a request to exceed the 50-foot height limit for downtown Perham buildings. The approval is for the new addition to their building to go to, but not exceed, 65 feet so that they may be up to code for the installation of an elevator.

  • A public hearing will be held on the 2021 street and utility improvements; more information about the hearing will be posted at city hall.

  • City offices will be closed on Monday, Jan. 20, for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

  • The Perham Rural Fire Association Annual meeting will be Wednesday, Jan. 29, at the Perham Fire Hall. A meal will be served at 6:340 p.m., followed by the meeting at 7 p.m.

The next regular Perham City Council meeting will be Monday, Feb. 10.
