Survey Shows 55 Percent Of Polled Residents Oppose Stadium
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – About 55 percent of Minneapolis residents surveyed said they were opposed to using taxes to help fund a new Vikings stadium, according to the Taxpayers League of Minnesota.
The survey, released Wednesday, showed that 27 percent of people said they are in favor of the current Vikings stadium proposal. About 18 percent of residents were still undecided as the Minneapolis City Council prepares to vote on the final bill at the end of the week.
For the survey, officials with the Taxpayers League of Minnesota contacted residents by phone and did a single question survey.
The city council’s final vote is expected Friday. That’s where they can pass the bill and construction plans would start or they could vote the stadium bill down and send it back to the State Legislature to negotiate a better deal for Minneapolis taxpayers.
