Mayor says he’ll propose an alternative
As the city lines up a contractor for phase two of the Robert Street Improvement Project, which will include landscaping and sidewalks, it will need to tackle another potentially costly hurdle.
West St. Paul opened bids for phase two on July 2, and three contractors submitted bids — all of which exceeded the engineer’s estimate by more than $1 million.
“I’m disappointed, but I’m not shocked,” Mayor David Meisinger told the Review.

Tobacco-related sampling continues to be prohibited
The ban on sampling of tobacco-related products like electronic cigarettes will continue in West St. Paul. However, to the gratitude of many, the city council has expanded the hours liquor can be sold at both on- and off-sale establishments in the community.
The council members reviewed West St. Paul’s alcohol and tobacco bylaws at their meeting Monday, June 8, and considered three proposed ordinance changes.
