The City Council voted 3-2 against joining the task force that will decide if a new ice arena should replace the old one in West St. Paul, according to an article in the Star Tribune.
“This is something that came to us and kind of pushed us against the wall,” Mendota Heights Mayor Sandra Krebsbach told the Star Tribune about the invitation to join the task force.
"The school district said it can’t contribute to the construction, management or maintenance of the arena, and Krebsbach said Mendota Heights is in almost the same boat," the Star Tribune article said.
Krebsbach and council members Liz Petschel and Mike Povolny voted against joining the task force. Council members Ultan Duggan and Steve Norton voted for joining the task force.
