Controversy over English-only Resolution
On July 26, 2010, the Lino Lakes City Council voted 4–1 in favor of a controversial English-only resolution for the city, the first city in Minnesota to approve such a measure as part of the English-only movement. The resolution would bar use of city money for translation of city documents into languages other than English. The fact that there is no prior history of such translations or expenses in Lino Lakes, however, prompted critics to call the resolution a proxy for motives other than the fiscal grounds cited by the motion's supporters. The Metro North Chamber of Commerce, which serves the region, opposed the resolution, with a spokesperson stating it makes the area appear unwelcoming.
