Information about Lino Lakes Minnesota
The first settlers, who were hunters and trappers, began coming to Lino Lakes from Canada and the eastern states around 1850. Native Americans were already making their home around Reshanau, Baldwin, Rice and Marshan Lakes. The Dakota Indians lived well with the abundance of wild rice and small game. Lino Lakes was incorporated into a village many years on May 11, 1955.
The Lino Lakes city council made news in July 2010, when they approved a measure to implement an English-only resolution for the city. This resolution precludes the use of city dollars for translation of city documents into languages other than English. The controversial part of this ruling is that there was no prior history of document translations or expenses in Lino Lakes. This created a stir to call the resolution a proxy for motives skirting the fiscal reasons originally used to substantiate the resolution. Residents of Lino Lakes have pulled together as a community and now have a strong voice that helps shapes the community and the future for the city. Come tour the Lino Lakes homes for sale today!
