JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council unanimously certified the primary election results for all citywide races.

Mayor Dwaine Heinrich and Councilman David Schloegel were absent from the meeting Tuesday, June 28.

Heinrich was reelected as mayor, and Councilman David Steele was also reelected. Also reelected were municipal judge Lawrence P. Kropp and Jamestown Parks and Recreation Commissioners Mike Landscoot, Mike Soulis and Mindi Schmitz.

All the terms expire in June 2026.

The City Council also unanimously approved a final plat of the Messner/Kartes Addition located at 1000 19th St. NW.


Trent Messner is the applicant listed on the city of Jamestown staff report for the final plat, and he intends to construct a building to house a construction business.


The City Council will also reconsider a request from Recycle North Dakota to waive the revenue share provision in the contract for the 2022 fiscal year at its meeting Tuesday, July 5.

The Jamestown Public Works Committee in a 3-1 vote recommended approval of a request from Recycle North Dakota to waive the revenue share provision in the contract for the 2022 fiscal year at its meeting Thursday, June 23. Steele was opposed, and Heinrich was not present at the meeting.

Steele said the City Council should reconsider the request since the contract was for five years. He said Ralph Friebel, owner of Recycle North Dakota, did not provide any reasons that leaving the revenue share provision in the contract is causing any financial difficulties for the recycling company.

The contract between Recycle North Dakota and the city of Jamestown states that the city receives 40% of any amount over the weighted average of $50 per ton, Friebel said at the Public Works meeting. The city of Jamestown has been paid about $19,000 over four years.
