To the Editor:
I disagree with Kelly O’Dea’s recommendation to city council members to just pay the $1.3 million over cost at Ridgedale Park. O’Dea decided those over budget monies can come from Minnetonka Parks and Trails fund. The project was given a price and that should be followed - if not, something needs to be eliminated. This park will be used mostly by high-end income senior Ridgedale condo users and not average Minnetonka residents with families. Our extra parks and trails tax dollars should be going to residential parks, not commercial areas.
