Klara Beck was appointed the new executive director of the Fergus Falls Port Authority Monday at City Hall.
Beck replaces interim executive director Andrew Bremseth, who serves as Fergus Falls city administrator.
Beck, a 2008 graduate of Fergus Falls High School and a 2012 graduate of St. Olaf College in Northfield, has served for the last two years as executive director of the Kaddatz Galleries in Fergus Falls.
“I think it’s going to be an exciting challenge,” Beck said.
In other business, the Port Authority approved terms for revolving and demolition loans for the former Mid-Am Dairy site property purchased by the city in 2018. Once cleared the Port Authority is proposing to sell the 28-acre property with an eye on development.
The Port Authority also approved a recommendation by city engineer Brian Yavarow to accept a $286,741 special services proposal from Braun Intertec.
Following the open portion of the meeting, the committee adjourned to a closed meeting to discuss the former Norgren Properties real estate sale. Some of the items discussed in closed session were the date of an auction, the sale price and the appointment of two Port Authority members to the sale committee.
