Winona's City Manager, Judy Bodway, told the Council Monday that nearly 800 people have requested utility reductions.
Bodway says almost 200 of those requests involve frozen water lines.
2 weeks ago, the council voted to allow a $70 credit on city utility bills, for up to two months, for city residents who run water to prevent frozen service lines.
The council voted to delay a request for a utility fee reduction from Steven and Sara Titus, whose home sustained extensive damage from a frozen water pipe on February 13th. The couple had over $80,000 gallons of water enter their home when they were away for three days.
Mrs. Titus told the council that they have filed a homeowners claim with their insurance company and will inform the council of the outcome.
In other business, during the council concerns portion of the meeting, 4th ward councilman, George Borzyskowski, made it clear that he will never support ANY changes to the levee wall. Borzyskowski said he DOES support the levee park committee and plans to refurbish Levee Park, just not any changes to the levee wall structure.
