'Very delicate' negotiations are underway for new state park land
ST. PAUL -- Talks to buy land for a Lake Vermilion state park are on hold, the state natural resources commissioner told a legislative committee, but hope remains that a deal could be completed.
Commissioner Mark Holsten said he wants $20 million set aside for land purchase to remain available.
"We are involved in a very delicate business discussion with U.S. Steel," he said. "The timing has to be right for the two parties to be involved in a business transaction."
