Top state and regional officials will be in Burnsville next Tuesday for the last in a series of town hall meetings on transportation issues.

Minnesota Department of Transportation Commissioner Charlie Zelle and Metropolitan Council Chair Sue Haigh will take part in the session from 4-6 p.m. The south metro session is at Burnsville High School Theatre, 600 East Hwy. 13.

The two will urge more spending on roads and transit in what is billed as “a discussion about transportation, how it affects quality of life, its link to Minnesota’s economy and the importance of investing in this state asset.”

There will be time for public questions and comments, and other state transportation staff will be on hand for questions as well.
