A ranking after Tuesday’s interviews with firms hoping to run the Alerus Center in Grand Forks puts Spectra at the top of the list. Events Center Chair Julie Rygg says a recommendation will go to the commission in a couple of weeks to begin negotiations with the management firm. Rygg says they heard some good information from all four companies to help take the Alerus Center to the next level.

Rygg says Spectra presented a strong case for marketing and sales. The goal is to have the deal done by the end of June. S-M-G also ranked high on the presentation list. VenuWorks and The Ballantine Group also expressed interest.

The management of the events center building has been in flux since the dismissal of Cheryl Swanson late last year.
