Gov. Dayton to visit East Grand Forks and Roseau next week

The governor, who hasn’t been on the road much since his holiday-time back surgery, will talk about city funding and housing shortages.

Gov. Mark Dayton will be on the road Tuesday, visiting East Grand Forks and Roseau.

The governor hasn’t gotten out of St. Paul much since his back surgery at the Mayo Clinic at the end of December.

WDAZ-TV says East Grand Forks officials want to talk to the governor about state funding of city projects, such as  a park, a pool and a multimillion-dollar waste water project.

And the Grand Forks Herald says the governor will discuss a housing shortage when he goes to Roseau.
