Ridgewater head hopes to see state bonding bill


WILLMAR -- Ridgewater College President Douglas Allen still hopes to see a state bonding bill that includes a $14.3 million improvement project for his Willmar campus.

Gov. Mark Dayton proposed a $1 billion bonding bill earlier this week and supplied a list of projects to make up half the total. It included the Ridgewater project. Dayton suggested the Legislature come up with projects to add up to $1 billion.
