MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Talks continue at the city level on a plan to build a new Vikings stadium at the Metrodome site. But no one wants to talk about the talks.

Governor Dayton had a private meeting with Minneapolis council members Sandra Colvin Roy and Kevin Reich, both of whom have reservations about the stadium plan, but they’re not wanting talk about their position, nor is Mayor R.T. Rybak, who’s pushing hard for a majority of yes votes on the council.

“I was in the meeting — and we’re having a lot of conversations with legislators and council members,” said Rybak. “You know, I don’t think I want to get into what everybody says in private meetings.”

State legislators say it’s essential to have the city council on board if there’s any chance of the house and senate approving a stadium bill this session.
