Project marred by ethics debate
Despite roughly a month-long delay, full street reconstruction along Marie Avenue — from Charlton Street to Livingston Avenue — will begin this summer.
Following a contentious vote to rebid the project, the West St. Paul city council awarded the bid to Danner Inc. at a special meeting June 29. The council voted 5-1 in support of the $1,828,908 bid from Danner Inc., with council member Jenny Halverson dissenting and several reluctant supporters criticizing the bidding process.

So do graphite-stained plastic pencil cases and their familiar companions: misshapen erasers, crayon-smudged scissors, and half-used glue sticks.
According to South St. Paul school board member Lauri Flatley, these used items and many other school supplies deserve a second look.
