Officials put design of Saints park out for bidST. PAUL – St. Paul leaders are putting the design of the St. Paul Saints’ new ballpark out for bid.
The Taxpayers League of Minnesota and Republican activist Greg Copeland filed a lawsuit last week, arguing the city awarded a design-build contract to the Ryan Cos. in violation of competitive bidding laws.
The lawsuit seeks to prevent the start of construction and force a bidding process.
City officials had previously said the project was exempt from the bidding process.
