ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) Minneapolis-based Ryan Cos. will build the new downtown St. Paul home for the Saints baseball team, after winning a competitive bidding process.
St. Paul initially awarded the contract to Ryan in September, but put the project out for bids after The Taxpayers League of Minnesota filed a lawsuit.
St. Paul Parks and Recreation Director Mike Hahm says Ryan had the highest score and lowest price of three proposals.
Details of the bids remain secret until St. Paul signs a contract with Ryan.
St. Paul also received a $1 million state grant to clean up pollution at the site of the new ballpark. The state had already committed $25 million to the project. The Saints and the city will cover the rest of the $54 million budget.
