City Attorney Discusses Chardonnay House Issue
Plans to tear down a well-known home from Rochester's early days was discussed by City Attorney Terry Adkins during his monthly appearance on Rochester Today with Tracy McCray and Andy Brownell Wednesday morning.
Terry explained a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that allows government entities from destroying privately-owned structured that are deemed to have historic value, but that doesn't necessarily mean the city will act to save the the over 100-year-old Chardonnay House along 2nd Street Southwest from the wrecking ball. That decision will be on the agenda for the Rochester City Council next week.
Adkins also indicated the city is still waiting to hear if Rochester City Lines will ask the Minnesota Supreme Court to review a recent ruling by the State Court of Appeals, which sided with the city in the two-year-old legal fight over the company's loss of the contract to operate Rochester's Public Transit System.
