Sales await City Council's go-ahead
Though it might not help improve swing technique per se, golfers in Inver Grove Heights may soon have the option to partake in adult beverages with an alcohol content a bit higher than the 3.2 beer Inver Wood Golf Course has been selling.
A new bill that was passed by the Minnesota Legislature at the beginning of May will allow the city-run golf course in Inver Grove Heights to sell hard liquor drinks to its patrons.
According to Mayor George Tourville, this is an old idea, but because it's only now coming to life, the city "has yet to figure out most of the logistics," he said.
"We've never sold any alcohol other than light beer there; never liquor," Tourville said.

Mayor vetoes council's approval

West St. Paul Mayor David Meisinger recently exercised his veto powers by shooting down a bid award for the Marie Avenue improvements project that was approved by a 4-2 vote at the special city council meeting May 19.

Ultimately, he got what he was after — a rebid on the project to try to attract more than one qualified bid. With added competition, he predicts the city will be able to save money on a lower bid.
