CIVIC BEAT // Locked in kennels, lawmakers will raise money for animal shelter

When Minneapolis City Council members raised property taxes last year, some residents thought their representatives belonged in the doghouse.

Their wish is coming true on Oct. 22.

Five council members and two state senators will lock themselves in Minneapolis Animal Care & Control kennels in hopes that donors will pay for their release. The Pohlad Foundation has agreed to a $10,000 matching donation, according to a city press release.
