The city council will also consider:

• A resolution authorizing termination of a development agreement and execution of a termination agreement between the City of Sleepy Eye and Frontier Labs, LLC, which entered into a contract for a private development/business subsidy agreement on July 15, 2018 for the planned construction of a new, two-story laboratory and agricultural warehouse with office space.

The developer failed to construct the project on the property by Aug. 1, 2021 as required by the development agreement; and agreed to convey and transfer the property back to the City of Sleepy Eye.
