The City of North Saint Paul has almost completed leveling every tax paying business in the town and replaced them with city projects. New police dept., new fire dept, new city garages, the famous used non-running windmill, and now a new school bus garage. I would say it's pretty obvious that there is corruption from the top down in the politics of the town and it would make a great investigation to see who's pockets are getting lined.

There is no concern regarding the loss of tax base by North Saint Paul leadership. There is also no concern regarding the environment.
How long ago did the city leadership say McKnight road was to be the new "main street"?
And now a Bus garage on the new "main street"?
How much money was wasted on the ecology center right next to the bus garage site.
North Saint Paul property taxes going up up and away!!

How much cash gets skimmed out of Hooterville Power and Electic (aka North Saint Paul Utilities) which if did not exist would give the people of North St. Paul lower rates from Excel.

You are right there, I'll never forget when an owner (Ron A.) of the old Kiendals grocery store found out he was paying $2,000 more EVERY MONTH for electricity from North Saint Paul than he would have paid Xcel.
North Saint Paul basically ran him out of business, just like any good socialistic government would. AND whom would eventually get control of that Kiendals property, RD of course.
Of course RD is of the same socialist Dew Corporation that took up residence in the new City Hall building while they build the new Kiendals Corner building. Sure would be interesting to know what pull RD has in city Hall.
Talk about connections in Gobernut, he was able to run a private company right out of City Hall!! He must know someone, ya suppose.

Downtown North St. Paul is nothing but a government facility. The downtown area is an eyesore and a disgrace. Only Neumann's Bar adds any character to what could be an historic Minnesota signature main street. It's criminal and a shame.

Your too funny...that was a shameless plug. Stop drilling holes in the side walk in front of your establishment for putting sign up.
Only a true Neumans bone head would pull a stunt like that.
And don't say it's your side walk.
Nuemans is a shit how with nothing but trailer trash and fat skanky bar wenches a sub-70 IQ other patrons.
The old dead frogs become "the special of the day" of tomorrows lunch menu.
And the food and entertainment could not get any worse unless you like the TIJUANAisc NIGHTLIFE.

Marshlands Task Force
This group, led by Hill-Murray president Joe Peschges, worked to outline the need for athletic fields on the MnDOT land. A cost estimate of $3 million was determined by the group to develop the area. The group now needs to develop a plan for funding and come up with maintenance ideas.
Wetlands Task Force
Ron Cockreil, a Maplewood resident, and Tom Peterson, a district manager with Ramsey County Conservation, are responsible for reviewing the feasibility of preserving wetlands on the site. The group decided to make a decision when an alternative-use plan is proposed that could impact the wetlands.
Wetlands restoration is one of the three conditions MnDOT has set for any future use for its property.
MnDOT also plans to retain about five acres of the site to store road materials or to be provided with a different location for that purpose.
If the use of the land impacts the wetlands currently there, Chris Roy, a MnDOT area manager for the north metro, said "wetland credits" will be required for the department to be able to replace them elsewhere. "We would build new wetlands prior to destroying (them)," Roy said.

IF the land north of HM were put to best use Highway 5 would be extended into St Paul as a new access.
5 could be routed along the railroad track south of HM and connect to the road now being constructed along the railroad coming out of St Paul.
If you look at the highways in Minneapolis there are many more than the number leading into St Paul. 100 in Mpls is a full blown freeway, 100 in St Paul is 2 lane a road.
169 is a full blown freeway and there is no highway like it in St Paul.
Build it and they will come, don't build it and they will leave.
BTW highway 5 into and out of St Paul could be a ONE WAY highway, direction reversed at noon. That way you get a 8 lane commuter highway with 4 lanes.
