Rybak hoping to send stadium signal yet this week

Minneapolis officials are trying to put together a show of support for the Vikings stadium plan put together by the Rybak and Dayton administrations and the team.

City council members and planners were huddling Thursday evening, trying to get seven signatures on a letter to the state, giving lawmakers some assurance that the council will ratify a stadium bill if it passes in the Legislature.

Asked this afternoon if he was ready to declared victory, Mayor R.T. Rybak said “not yet.”

Gov. Mark Dayton’s spokeswoman, Katharine Tinucci said “nothing’s signed, nothing is done.”

But city council member Meg Tuthill said she thinks things could get clearer but didn’t know how the count stands.

Here’s one version of the letter:
