CIVIC BEAT // Special session brings good, bad news to Minneapolis

A $23-million cut in state Local Government Aid payments to Minneapolis has triggered several city budget cuts, including reductions in funding to the Fire and Police departments and the street paving program.

The LGA cut was revealed to Minneapolis leaders after a special legislative session held in mid-July. A special session was needed after Gov. Mark Dayton and the Legislature failed to reach a budget compromise during the normal session that ended in May.

The special session brought a mix of good news and bad news to
city leaders.
