30-percent Rule Reaction



Winona city officials are reacting to the decision this week by the Minnesota Appeals court to uphold the city' 30-percent housing ordinance.

The rule limits rental properties to occupy no more than 30-percent of a city block and property owners have been opposed to it.

Mayor Mark Peterson said the Appellate Court decision determined that the law is legal.

Peterson also predicts a state Supreme Court ruling, if one is sought, will be the same on the issue which is serving as a test case in Minnesota.
