The Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. Board Monday was unanimous in its objection to the City Council’s decision to take half of the 1 percent sales tax previously dedicated to economic development.
“We should go on record as not approving the grand theft of this fund,” said Dick Geigle, JSDC Board member. “Four people decided to abscond with the funds the citizens voted for economic development.”

Rather than adopt the quiet zone ordinance based on petitions in support of it, the City Council’s Finance and Legal Committee unanimously opted to hold a special election.
The 1,200 signatures on petitions to reconsider the quiet zone ordinance were officially verified by City Administrator Jeff Fuchs Jan. 7. That means the City Council has until April 8 to hold a special election.
Quiet zone petition organizers Dan Buchanan and Dwaine Heinrich are filing about 1,200 signatures today at City Hall. Once verified, the City Council can either pass an ordinance or hold a special election.
Participants in the quiet zone petition drive are meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Continental Bistro meeting room.
Organizer Dan Buchanan said it’s an opportunity to check on how the drive is going, verify the count and answer any questions. Any resident who has a question is also invited to come.
Despite its defeat in the June election with 1,557 against and 1,293 for, quiet zone supporters haven’t given up. They’ve begun collecting the necessary 1,200 signatures on petitions to initiate reconsideration of the proposed ordinance.
