Proctor Public Notice
1300 Sales and Use Tax

   1300.01. Authority.  The Minnesota legislature has; by session laws of Minnesota 2014, Chapter 308, Article 3, Section  34, authorized the City of Proctor to impose an additional food and beverage  tax within the City to provide revenues to pay for the construction and improvement of walking and bicycle trails;  a multiuse civic center facility and parking improvements;  and improvements related to the redevelopment of a road through the fairgrounds property ceded to the City of Proctor by the City of Duluth.  The City of Proctor approved the Act in accordance with applicable law, as did the voters of the City of Proctor.
  1300.02. Definitions. The words, terms  and phrases used in this Ordinance shall have the meaning  ascribed  to them  in Minnesota  Statutes,  Section  297A.01, except where the context clearly indicates otherwise.  In addition, the following definitions shall apply:
1. “Act” means laws of Minnesota  for 2014, Chapter  308, Article 3, Section  34 as amended;
2. “City” means the City of Proctor;
3. “Commissioner”  means the Commissioner  of Revenue for the State of Minnesota acting under the authority of an agreement entered into between the City and the State of Minnesota  pursuant  to the Act, or such other person or entity designated to administer and collect the Proctor Sales and Use Tax;
4. “Proctor Food and Beverage” means the tax imposed and collected pursuant to this Ordinance;
5. “Ordinance”   means   this   ordinance   in   its present   form   and   as  it   may  be subsequently  codified if that should occur;
6. “Retailer maintaining  a place of business in the City” or any like term shall mean any retailer having or maintaining  within the City, directly  or by a subsidiary, an office,  place of distribution,  sales or sample room  or place,  warehouse  or other place of business,  or having any representative,  agent, sales person,  canvasser  or solicitor operating in the City under the authority of the Retailer or its subsidiary, for   any  purpose,   including   the  repairing,   selling,   delivering,   installing,   or soliciting of orders of the Retailer’s goods or services, or the leasing of tangible personal property located in the City, whether the place of business or agent, representative,   sales   person,   canvasser,   or  solicitor,   is  located   in   the  City permanently  or  temporarily,   or  whether  or  not  the  Retailer   or  subsidiary  is authorized to do business within the City.

1300.03. Imposition of Tax.      Except as otherwise provided in this Ordinance, there is hereby imposed  an additional excise  tax in the amount of one percent on the gross receipts from the  sales of food and beverages which occur  within  the City of Proctor.  The imposition, administration, collection and enforcement of this tax shall be governed by the provisions of Minnesota Statute Section 297A.48.

1300.04. Separate Statement:  Collection From Purchaser Advertising  No Tax: Minimum Uniform tax Collection Methods.       The Proctor  Food and Beverage Tax shall be stated and charged separately from the sales price or charge for service insofar as practicable,  and should  be a debt from  the purchaser  to  the  seller  recoverable  at law  in  the  same  manner  as  other  debts.    In computing the tax to be collected  as a result of transaction, any amount of tax less than one-half of the cent may be disregarded  and amounts of tax one-half cent or more may be considered  an additional cent.  If the sales price of any sale at Retail is ninety-nine cents or less, no tax shall be collected.

1300.05. Exemption Certificates.      An exemption  certificate  taken in good faith from a  purchaser to the effect that the property  purchased  is for resale or that  the sale is otherwise exempt  from the application of the tax imposed  by this ordinance  will conclusively  relieve the Retailer   from   collecting   and  remitting   the  tax.     A person  who   has   obtained   from   the Commissioner  an exemption certificate pursuant to Minnesota Statute Section  297A.ll may use such exemption certificate for the purposes of the sales tax imposed by the City.

1300.06.  Presumption of Purpose of Sale.  For the purpose of the proper administration and enforcement of Section 3 of this Ordinance, it shall be presumed  that  all  retail  sales for delivery in the City are for storage,  use, or other consumption  in the City until the contrary is
estab1ished.     

1300.07.  Collection of Tax at Time of Sale.
1. Any Retailer making  deliveries  within the City, any Retailer maintaining  a place of business in the City, or any other Retailer otherwise doing business within the City,  upon  making  sales  of  any  items  described  in  Section  3  which  are  not exempted  from  the  sales  tax  imposed  under  that  section  and  which  are to  be delivered  or caused  to be delivered  within the City to the purchaser, shall at the time of making such sales collect the Sales and Use Tax from the purchaser.  The tax collected by such retailer shall be remitted to the Commissioner  on behalf of the City.
2.  Any Retailer required  to collect the Proctor Food and Beverage Tax and remit such tax to the Commissioner  pursuant to this section shall register with the Commissioner and provide such other information  as the Commissioner may require.

1300.08. Agent  of  Retailer.

1300.11. Collection and Enforcement.      The Proctor Food and Beverage Tax imposed  by the City  pursuant  to this  Ordinance  shall  be subject  to the same interests,  penalties,  and other rules as are applicable  to the State  general  sales  and  use  tax imposed  by Minnesota  Statutes Chapter 289A and 297A.   The Proctor Food and Beverage Tax imposed  by the City pursuant to this Ordinance may be collected by the State on behalf of the City as provided by an appropriate agreement with the Minnesota Commissioner  of Revenue.

1300.12.      Tax Clearance Issuance  of License.    The City may not issue  or renew a license for the conduct of a trade or business  in the City if the Commissioner  notifies  the City that the applicant for such license owes delinquent  Proctor Food and BeverageTaxes as provided in this Ordinance, or penalties or interest due on such taxes.  For the purposes of this Section, the following terms have the following meanings:

PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
MEMBERS PRESENT: Jake Benson, Shawn McGovern, Jim  Schwarzbauer, Travis White,  and Mayor Brenna
OTHERS PRESENT: Jim Rohweder, City Administrator; Tim Peterson, Deputy Clerk; John Bray, City Attorney; Tammie Aanonsen; Jim Aird, Midway Township; Nicole Swanson; Eric Bingaman; Bob Lambert; Kathy Hannan

Benson added 7K: Proctor Sings
  Motion by McGovern, seconded by White and carried: To approve the City Council agenda of July 7, 2014 as amended.
  Motion by Schwarzbauer, seconded by Brenna and carried: To approve the Consent Agenda.
McGovern stated this has been a partnership and the City chose LHB as the engineer – who should be held accountable. He said that he will not vote to give LHB or Ulland Bros. one more dime nor put this burden on the taxpayers. White said he agreed with McGovern 100%. Schwarzbauer said ditto. Rohweder asked Bray if the city should contact the county, and Bray said yes.
  Motion by McGovern, seconded by Benson and carried (3-2, Schwarzbauer & White opposed): To consider this document, as presented, a 1st Reading for the ordinance authorizing the City of  Proctor to charge for fire service as authorized by Minn. Stat. §§ 366.011, 366.012, and 415.01.
Rohweder stated that the public hearing has been set for August 4, 2014.
At 6:17 pm the Hearing was opened to the public. Rohweder stated that the list presented to the councilors is current as of 4 pm today. If the assessments are not paid the City will submit a assessment bill due before October 1, 2014 which will include a $50.00 City collection fee. Failure to pay by that date will result in the certification of the assessment plus a 10% penalty to the County Auditor for collection with the real estate taxes.
White stated that he doesn’t believe the city should be involved with a contract     between an individual and a business.
  Motion by McGovern, seconded by Schwarzbauer and carried (4-1, White – no):             To certify the 2014 Delinquent Garbage Assessment List as presented.
At 6:19 p.m. the council returned to the regular meeting.
White stated that last Friday, July 4th, was the 238th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.  He went on to read the following excerpts from that document:
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
And White continued by reading:
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
  Motion by Schwarzbauer, seconded by Benson and carried: To approve the bid from Shelton Excavating for the Storm Sewer Repair on 2nd Street
   Motion by McGovern, seconded by Schwarzbauer and carried: To approve the Great Lakes Office Solutions maintenance contract as presented.
McGovern said that he was approached by Tom Gauthier. Gauthier’s wife recently passed away, and the family is looking to purchase a park bench as a memorial and place it on city property.
  Motion by McGovern, seconded by White and carried: To authorize City Administration to locate a position on City property for this memorial and others like it.
  Motion by McGovern, seconded by White and carried: To approve the Hylla 5K     Run as presented.
Rohweder reported that the County was not enthusiastic about using a flashing sign at 5th Street  and 3rd Avenue. The county will put reflective tape down first.
McGovern asked administration about the contact person for the traffic control box 2nd Street and  flashing warning signs for the 2nd  Street stop lights on Hwy 2. Rohweder will contact the county.
  Motion by McGovern, seconded by Schwarzbauer and carried (4-1, White – no): To approve the General Fund bills in the amount of $86,303.60. Roll call vote: Schwarzbauer – yes, White – no; Benson – yes; McGovern – yes; Brenna – yes.
  Motion by Benson, seconded by McGovern and carried (4-1, White – no): To approve the Liquor Fund bills in the amount of $60,196.87. Roll call vote: Schwarzbauer – yes, White – no; Benson – yes; McGovern – yes; Brenna – yes.
  Motion by White, seconded by McGovern and carried: To adjourn the City Council meeting at 8:15pm
The foregoing is a summary of the minutes. A complete copy can be obtained on our website or at City Hall during regular business hours.
Respectfully submitted,
James Rohweder,

Today, as we thank national service members for their commitment, let us all pledge to do our part to strengthen our city through service and volunteering.

WHEREAS, national service expands economic opportunity by creating more sustainable, resilient communities and providing education, career skills, and leadership abilities for those who serve; and
