MOORHEAD, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Minnesota Senate lawmakers make stops in Moorhead, Detroit Lakes, Crookston and Thief River Falls today as they continue hearing requests for state bonding money for public works projects.
In Thief River Falls, Northland Community and Technical College wants $ 6-million to replace sheet-metal hangars with one brick building for its aviation programs.
College President Anne Temte says it will not only give them modern, secure space for high technology they're using in the unmanned aerial systems maintenance program, but also drastically reduce utility costs.
Yesterday the Bonding Committee heard pitches for upgrade money for a number of projects, including the state correctional facility in St. Cloud, the River's Edge Convention Center, Alexandria Technical and Community College, and several projects in Perham.
