Rochester Projects Included in Bonding Bill
St Paul, MN (KROC AM News) - Funding for some Rochester projects is included in the bonding bill that was agreed to Monday by Gov. Dayton and legislative leaders.
The bill authorizes $1.25-million for the Rochester reading center and $2.5-million for the airport expansion and renovation project. Also included is $2.5-million for work at RCTC, which is far short of what was requested.
Also included in the bill is $500,000 for Oronoco’s wastewater infrastructure plan, $4-million for the Lanesboro dam repair project and $25-million for the Education Village at Winona State University.
The overall cost of the bill is nearly $1-billion. Gov. Dayton had initially proposed a $1.6-billion bill while the legislature had smaller proposals.
