Dakota Broadband Board finding a home and maybe a new ED

The Farmington Independent reports…

The Dakota Broadband Board may open office space on the second floor of Farmington City Hall.

“The Dakota Broadband is moving forward and they have offered to host the executive director here in the building,” said Brenda Wendlandt, human resources director for the City of Farmington. “We would also run salary and benefits through our payroll system and manage it and the DBB would reimburse us.”

The city is currently determining what the costs of having the office at City Hall would be. City staff are working on a contract for the rental space and human resources relationship between the city and the DBB.

And there’s more…

The DBB also plans to recruit a new executive director after Jan. 1, 2019, with the intention of the having a new director by the end of May.
