MOUNDS VIEW, MN-The Mounds View City Council will vote Monday on whether or not to sell its 62-acre golf course near Interstate 35 to Medtronic Inc. for part of a huge new corporate campus.

But if the hearing earlier this week is any indication, the sale–which would be the site for the $65-million, 820,000-sf first phase of the Fridley-based medical device firm’s expansion–is no done deal.

At the end of an extended hearing on the sale, the council just barely defeated a motion to put the land up for bids by Mayor Rob Marty. The vote was 3-2. The proposal was in response to objections that the selling price of the golf course–$8.65 million–is too low and that tax benefits wouldn’t be realized for decades.
