ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) - A public meeting about the design of the new Minnesota Vikings stadium shifted focus when an attendee asked if the team planned to charge season-ticket holders large fees to help cover the cost.
The Post-Bulletin reports that many of those attending Tuesday night's meeting in Rochester applauded when season-ticket holder Mike Atkinson posed his question to team officials.
Earlier Tuesday, Gov. Mark Dayton told the team's owners he strongly opposed any plans to charge such fees to help the team pay its share of the $975 stadium. The team's owners say the option was a key part of the deal.
Experts say such fees range from a few thousand dollars to $50,000.
Vikings vice president Lester Bagley says there's been no decision, and that the team is researching options.
