Two Mankato projects have made Governor Walz’s recommended list for water quality, and infrastructure improvements. The Governor announced the second of four packages included in his local jobs and projects plan Friday. Walz is recommending 12-million 385-thousand dollars for riverbank stabilization and erosion control along the Minnesota River and Indian Creek and for improvements to the Minnesota River Trail and Riverfront Park. The Governor is also recommending four-point-one-five million for improvements to reduce erosion and improve water quality in the Minnesota River-Mankato watershed, specifically by restoring wetlands. The debate will be how much lawmakers will bond. Governor Walz reportedly wants to bond over two billion dollars while Senate republicans support bonding significantly less. Any bonding bill needs a supermajority of both legislative chambers to move forward.
