City Council



Winona City Councilman's Paul Double motion Monday night to have city administration send a letter to the Minnesota State Arts and Cultural Heritage Board, requesting they deny future funding requests from the Frozen River Film Festival was unsuccessful.

Mayor Mark Peterson says no one on the City Council offered a second to Double's motion, so it died.

Double has voiced his displeasure after the the festival pulled the film "Fracknation" from a showing during the recent festival. Double says the action by festival organizers to pull the film resulted in significant negative national publicity for the Winona community.
