Dayton To Get Bonding Recommendations Aug. 15

Gov. Mark Dayton said that the Department of Employment and Economic Development will hand him by Aug. 15 recommendations for spending $47.5 million on public works projects.

The funds, to be raised by the state selling bonds, attracted communities across the state to submit 90 proposals worth nearly $290 million.

Dayton said he will have final say on what projects are funded, but did not say how long he will take to decide once he has the department’s recommendations.
