State Rep. David Steffen says it's time to dismantle the Lambeau stadium board. Ashwaubenon officials told him that's premature.

ASHWAUBENON – StateRep. David Steffen's proposed plan to dismantle the Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District got an unwelcome reception Tuesday from the Ashwaubenon Village Board.

The Republican from Howard would end the board, which oversees the Green Bay Packers' lease at Lambeau Field, and return to property taxpayers about $81 million set aside for stadium maintenance through 2031.
