It might cost revelers at least $1 to stroll down Broadway Avenue with a beer in hand during the 2010 St. Paul Park Heritage Days festival. That was just one of many suggested changes proposed by new Heritage Days committee chair Greg Langbehn, as he spoke to city council members last week.

Langbehn told the council he met with Broadway Avenue business owners in early November. "They had a long list of recommendations and suggestions," Langbehn said.
