Committee Announces Base's Economic Impact

Posted: Updated:

The Minot Air Force Base is home to the 91st Missile Wing and the 5th Bomb Wing. While the Base is its own community, the airmen and civilians still have a big impact economically on Minot's community.

The Military Affairs Committee announced the 2013 Economic Impact Analysis as of September 30, 2013.

The Base brought in more than $583 million in 2013, which is up about 18.8 percent from 2009.  This includes jobs and payroll to maintenance and construction.

"So, based on this, the trend we have in the presentations we had on construction and what we can see, I guess it's fairly safe to say that Minot Air Force Base will continue to have a positive impact economically on the local community," says Lt. Col. Jorge I. Jimenez, Minot Air Force Base.

As the city continues to grow, Minot Air Force Base hopes to continue to build up relationships and play an active role in the community.
