Supreme Court upholds Met Council's power to control growthby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
The Minnesota Supreme Court has upheld the Metropolitan Council's power to control the pace of development in the Twin Cities area. The court ruled that the Met Council has the authority to require the city of Lake Elmo to connect to the regional sewer system. Lake Elmo officials had challenged the authority of the Met Council saying the sewer connection would spur development at a faster pace than they would like.
