local grower Brian McGinness of the farmers’ situationThe McGinnesses who operate Riverbound Farm south of Mandan have been members of the co-op since its inception They helped in grant applications and it’s their barnwood that decorates the walls"So we care about it" McGinness said"I wish we could pay it all right now" said Glen Philbrick the co-op’s board president adding that the funding isn’t thereThe co-op had $343 in its checking account Oct 16 after paying as many bills as possible Also a local producer Philbrick has the longest-standing debt owed him $2730 that is almost a year overdue"It is that tight There’s no wiggle room at all" said Carmen Hoffner who took over as general manager on Oct 8Sales are going well according to Hoffner who said the co-op saw $291000 above projected sales from July 2016 to June 2017 Hoffner attributes the co-op’s difficult financial position to overstocking and other mismanagement practicesHoffner is cutting costs making calls and setting up payment plans with a number of local vendors already receiving paymentsBig bills to the store’s main supplier KeHE Distributors which accounts for 90 percent of the goods sold and includes items that can’t be sourced locally were paid first in order to keep deliveries coming Money owed to local vendors ranges from less than $100 to a few thousand dollars eachFinancial tribulationsAs the co-op was preparing to open in May 2016 the board thought the venture was in good shape financially according to PhilbrickBy August vendors were raising concerns about emails and phone calls not being returned In November a stack of invoices was found that had not been recorded That was when the board realized cash flow was going to be tight from overspending Philbrick saidAnd things would only get worseThe board would run through three sets of general managers it felt were not doing the job From the board’s point of view there were issues with high labor costs and overpurchasing that resulted in products spoiling From March to May under interim management the co-op was operating $208000 over budget Hoffner saidAfter his resignation Reese Martin the co-op’s third interim co-general manager conceded there had been over ordering but he had been working to correct the practiceAs for unpaid vendors Martin and former interim co-general manager Troy Ricciardi contended the vendor bills had been caught up in May"Up until I transitioned into the prepared foods department we were basically current on everything 90 days or newer and had automatic payments for our major vendors including any balance owed" said Ricciardi who expressed frustrations with board members who also were vendors and overreaching in their interactions with staffA report to the board in May reads there was $106000 in bills older than 60 days and $71843 payableThe co-op’s first general manager Randy Joersz declined to comment for the story Facebook messages sent by the Tribune to the other two managers Desiree Uttke and Darby Smith went unanswered A phone message was also left with family of Uttke Phone numbers listed for Smith were disconnectedA consultant was brought in to get the books back in order before Hoffner was officially handed the reins this monthHoffner says she is making progress and has been able to mend fences with a number of local vendors"These are real people who have families to feed" she saidHoffner said despite the hardships many have said they will stay with the co-op due to the demand in the community and the outlet for sales it providesBut some will notThe McGinnesses are now receiving payments on what is owed them but have decided they aren’t going to sell at the co-op next year and thought that put them in a better position to say something"We really care about the viability of small local agriculture From that perspective we just wanted to offer some tough love" McGinness saidDespite a contract with the co-op this past year the McGinnesses ended up only selling a third of the food agreed upon They were not paid for the food they did sell to the store for many monthsAlong with the stress of dealing with this year’s drought "that’s very difficult" said McGinness adding there was no communication and not knowing when payment would be forthcoming made the situation more uncomfortableMcGinness said he understands the need to pay the main supplier to keep the store operating calling the decision to do so "legit" However he can’t help but feel the co-op has strayed from its core values and more transparency is neededIn response the board now has a book with all minutes and financials available for member viewing in the store"I wish the whole thing hadn’t happened" Philbrick said "We have an opportunity now to get on good footing"WILLISTON ND – North Dakota oil production fell about 1 percent in March to an average of 11 million barrels per day the Department of Mineral Resources said ThursdayAverage daily oil production dropped nearly 10000 barrels since February due to the ongoing slowdown in the industry caused by low oil pricesDirector Lynn Helms said he predicted oil production was going to drop below 11 million barrels per day in March but four operators submitted amended production reports with significant production increases“We had anticipated as recently as 10 days ago it was going to be much worse than that” Helms saidNatural gas production increased in March by 12 percent to a new all-time high of 17 billion cubic feet per dayHelms attributed that increase to the focus on the core area of the Bakken where the gas to oil ratio is two to four times higher than other areasNatural gas flaring dropped to 97 percent in March the first time since December 2007 that percentage has been below 10 percent“Fortunately industry has really focused a lot of gas gathering and investment in that (core) area” Helms saidThe volume of gas flared in March was not available ThursdayNorth Dakota had 27 drilling rigs active Thursday the lowest since July 2005 The statewide rig count is now down 88 percent down from the peak ins 2012 In Williams County the rig count is down 98 percent since the peak of activity“Most of Williams County is just not economic at today’s oil prices” Helms said “Just a small part of the southeastern corner of Williams County is economic”Helms anticipates the slowdown to last until at least the third quarter of 2016 and possibly into the second quarter of 2017The number of wells that have been drilled but are waiting on hydraulic fracturing crews was 920 at the end of March an increase of 13 from the previous month Crews completed 59 new wells in MarchThe estimated number of inactive wells is 1523 an increase of 84 since FebruaryTransportation of crude oil continues to
