    Well, I guess that answers our question on who funds the Bottineau Boulevard Partnership (to the tune of $4,125). WE DO, Even though the majority of people in Crystal are mad as hornets about all of this Bottineau corridor stuff. People at least wanted a voice, and were steamrolled. There are more built-in costs to us with this thing than to making a purchase through TicketMaster.
