After two hours of hot debate, the Mandan City Commission on Tuesday gave the Wal-Mart Stores Inc., its first property tax break in the state, to build a supercenter in the city.

The tax break – worth about $403,000 over two years – passed with a 3-2 vote. Commissioners Dot Frank, Dennis Rohr and Sandra Tibke voted yes. Mayor Arlyn VanBeek and Commissioner Mike Braun voted no.

Commissioners downsized the corporation's original request for $700,000 in tax breaks over five years. The Mandan Growth Fund Committee recommended a five-year plan that would have given Wal-Mart full tax breaks for two years, 75 percent for year three, 50 percent in year four and 25 percent in year five.

Frank made the motion for a full tax break for two years after hearing opposition to five years of tax breaks.
