FlexPACE share buyback approved for Jamestown Chiropractic Arts Clinic – Jamestown Sun

JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. Board of Directors on Monday, June 10, unanimously approved a FlexPACE share buyback valued at over $15,200 for the relocation of the Chiropractic Arts Clinic.

If approved by the Jamestown City Council and Stutsman County Commission, the City of Jamestown's share would be nearly $12,200 and the county's share would be over $3,000.

Iverson Properties LLC, owned by Kenn Iverson, purchases a building at 1008 10th St. SW in Jamestown. The building will be used to relocate the Chiropractic Arts Clinic.

The building will have an additional tenant – American Family Insurance – which will occupy 28% of the building. The FlexPACE incentive will also be passed on to American Family Insurance, said Alyssa Looysen, JSDC's director of business development.

The new facility will allow the Chiropractic Arts Clinic to introduce new and innovative chiropractic treatments and technology to the community, Iverson said. He said the new location will allow the company to offer digital x-rays and hire an acupuncturist in the future.

Board approves release of funds

The JSDC Board of Directors unanimously approved the cancellation of commitments to Shocker Hitch LLC from North Dakota New Jobs Training program funds.

The JSDC board approved $70,000 in North Dakota job training funding for Shocker Hitch in 2022. Looysen said the funds have not been used.

If approved by the City Council and County Commission, the city would receive more than $56,500 back and more than $14,100 would go back to the county.

Board approves revised proposal for internship program

The JSDC Board of Directors unanimously approved an updated proposal for the internship reimbursement program.

Looysen said the new questions in the application would make it clearer whether the employer is looking for an intern or hiring an individual as a part-time worker.

The JSDC will also try to host open houses for interns to help them get to know the community better, Looysen said. The events would also be open to students who are not part of the internship reimbursement program.

The Internship Reimbursement Program is designed to increase the number of local internships and help employers recruit and retain workers, according to the JSDC website. The program pays up to $3,500 to employers who hire university/college students to cover payroll costs and is open to employers in Stutsman County. Employers may be eligible to be reimbursed for half of payroll costs. Employers must pay the intern $15 per hour.
