Woodbury seeks exception from state for Bielenberg Sports Center funding
It's not a matter of whether Woodbury can find money to pay for an expansion at its signature Bielenberg Sports Center.
It's a question of where the city can get the best deal.
Right now city leaders are banking on a bill at the Legislature that would change state law just for Woodbury. The change would create an exception in Minnesota law that currently requires cities to receive voter approval to fund construction projects involving municipal sports arenas.
