In Minneapolis, the City Council's Intergovernmental Relations Committee approved a resolution backing Mayor Sharon Sayles Belton's proposal to offer city, county and Park Board land by the Mississippi River to the state for the proposed Twins ballpark. The proposal now goes to the full council. Meanwhile, organizers of a petition drive to amend the Minneapolis City Charter said that they were close to getting the necessary signatures to place an amendment -- requiring a referendum on public financing of $10M or more for athletic stadiums -- on the November ballot (STAR TRIBUNE, 8/6)....In Houston, the Harris County Commissioners Court approved an amendment expanding a regional sports authority from 11 to 13 members. The City Council "is expected" to give its OK today (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 8/6).
