If the Mayo Clinic is to expand in Rochester, city and county residents must contribute a larger share of the $500 million needed for public transit and other improvements, state lawmakers said this week…Olmsted County Board Chairman Jim Bier supports the measure, but expects some pushback from county residents. "People don't like taxes," he said. "I mean, I don't think that's any big secret. But I think generally people will see that it's a good thing. Mayo's what drives the economy down here."
