In all of our negotiations with the team and discussions with youand other state leaders, Ramsey County has strived to remain flexible, to problem-solvecreatively and to work, at all times, in the best interests of the people of Ramsey County and theState of Minnesota.Below we present our third comprehensive financing plan for the stadium development, a menuof funding options that capture user fees and site-specific taxes totaling up to $20.6 millionannually, or $618 million over the 30-year life of the project.
