Yesterday I posted about the first floor of City Hall and focused on the BIG spenders, the City Council. You may have noticed that the offices were numbered in the 200's. That is because as you enter the front door as pictured above it is the ground floor from 3rd Ave. There is an entrance from 2nd Ave BUT although much of that floor is City Hall you can NOT enter the City Hall from that door.
The 2nd floor
If you walk the open stairway to the 2nd floor you can not ignore the beauty created by the skylight above. At the top of the steps you will find the following offices.
Above is the North lobby, with the tables it appears to be a meeting area. The South lobby appears to be more of a lounge. (next picture)
Most noticeable on this floor is the City Clerks Office.
There are several other offices on this floor, most notably the City Attorney's office. Minot has had a bad run with City Attorneys but that is another blog post.
The only comment here is I don't know who is a tool of who between the Council and the City Manager. I have had good and poor interactions with past City Managers but I have yet to meet the current one.
I am walking you through the new City Hall with pictures and a little
commentary in 3 parts with each part a separate floor of the building.
