The one thing I'll say is that the parks are very well kept,I can understand why they need more rev.

The most affluent county in the state won't pay for it's own ammenities, but relies on taxpayers in Hennepin county where the avg income is $20,000 per year less. If I were a suburban Hennepin county resident, I would be outraged!

This is another example of conservatives not wanting to pay their fair share fo things they get and use. Instead they take from the more heavily populated Hennepin County which has a more liberal base. The same goes for outstate MN. They complain about those "looney liberals" in the city but generally we are paying for their roads and other infrastructural needs. The proof is in the pudding and Scott County is taking a bigger scoop than it deserves. This is the real socialism and the real welfare and it's being taken by a bunch of conservatives. The proof is in the math. The math says they are taking handouts from a liberal county. Funny how the truth really works out when you strip away all the TEA party talking points and insults they deliver on the FOX network.

From the article title: Park Costs are Crossing County Lines, I thought this would be about public servants who are using taxpayer-paid-for county vehicles to drive to and from home outside of the county in which they are employed. For example, an Anoka County employee mentioned in a Trib article a while back, who has been doing so for over 15 years (to Dakota County). Cut the obvious wasteful and unethical spending. Public servants making $130k+ a year can easily afford to drive their own car to work! As for Three Rivers divesting itself of that dam and giving the problem to AC, that was an excellent move. Now AC will be known for wasting $16M on a dam when it was already too late to make it a carp barrier.
