Winona's 30 percent ordinance upheld in court

Posted:

WINONA, Minn. (KTTC) -- The Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld Winona's controversial 30 percent rule.

The ordinance says no more than 30 percent of homes on any block can be given rental licenses.

In December 2013, a group of homeowners challenged the ordinance and brought it up with the Court of Appeals. The court had 90 days to make a decision.

On Monday the court found the ordinance was constitutional. 

A Winona County Judge had already ruled the law as constitutional earlier in 2012.
