Kleis Still Hopeful for Full Bonding Request to Complete Convention Center

ST. CLOUD — We told you the Minnesota House of Representatives included $1-million for the River’s Edge Convention Center in its bonding bill proposal. But, it’s well short of the $10.1-million the city of St. Cloud is seeking to complete the project.

Mayor Dave Kleis says they are still hopeful they can get the entire amount as proposed by Governor Dayton, but an agreement will still have to be worked out in a final bill.

Kleis says building a parking ramp is the highest priority. The rest of the money would be used for river features and other aesthetics to the building.

A Senate bonding bill is expected to be released sometime this week and Kleis is hopeful it will include more money than the House version.
