It is the intent of the legislature to foster a partnership between the private sector and the state for the purpose of operating a zoological garden. The legislature seeks to enable the Minnesota Zoological Garden to operate independently, efficiently, and economically and to be active in soliciting nonstate contributions. The legislature seeks to have the food and beverage facilities at the Zoological Garden operated in a manner designed to respond to the food and beverage service demands of visitors while maximizing the economic benefits accruing to the Zoological Garden from the operation of food and beverage facilities.
