Ramsey County Residents Won't Vote on Stadium Sales Tax

Just as fears have been ramping up that the Minnesota Vikings were going to be L.A.-bound, the Vikings and their fans get some much-needed good news. Tuesday night the Ramsey County Charter Commission met to listen to public opinion regarding the proposed Vikings stadium in Arden Hills, then the panel rejected putting the proposed sales tax increase before voters on the 2012 ballot. This is good news to the Vikings and stadium supporters had voiced concern that putting the proposed sales tax increase to a voter referendum would delay the project and add significantly to its cost. But, lest the team and stadium advocates breathe too easily, the results of the Metropolitan Council's stadium site feasibility study commissioned by Governor Mark Dayton will be available Wednesday. *Note: After publishing this I saw that site member Premier Cherdenko also posted a FanShot about this. His FanShot links to a much more detailed article. Check it out.

Yet Another Community Meeting to Talk Stadium Stuff

According to our friend Cory Merrifield over at SavetheVikes.org, tonight there is a meeting of the Ramsey County Charter Commission. The meeting is meant to gather public testimony about the proposed Minnesota Vikings stadium in Arden Hills. The Commission is trying to determine whether it should vote to put County contribution to the proposed stadium on the ballot via the benighted voter referendum. The anti-stadium folks will probably be there, it would be swell if some of the pro-stadium element in Ramsey County would show up too.
