Rybak and Duluth Mayor Don Ness, Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans, and other mayors and local officials from around the state will hold a press conference to support Governor Dayton’s budget proposal to invest $80 million in Local Government Aid (LGA). “Mayor Rybak and I, along with other Mayors throughout the State, appreciate Governor Dayton’s support and investment in Local Government Aid (LGA).” stated Mayor Don Ness.
The group will also discuss a proposed change to the LGA formula designed by mayors and leaders from cities around the state.
