The Minneapolis City Council is expected to issue the final OK on construction of a new Vikings Stadium this week. After an exhaustive process at the state legislature the almost 1 billion dollar football stadium emerged as one of very few accomplishments of the state’s lawmakers this session. But the process is not finished.
A Minneapolis City Council committee meets Thursday morning and the full council on Friday morning. There will be Vikings fans and union members in attendance to encourage the council to approve the project.
And there will be opponents.
Dave Bicking is one of them. He has organized a rally to show opposition to the stadium deal at 4:30 pm this afternoon (Wednesday, May 23, 2012) at Minneapolis City Hall.
Bicking talked with KFAI's Mike Fischbein on The Takeaway.
