Young company faces big hurdles


On behalf of their New Brighton-based company and many interested in their idea, Jesse Lammi and John Louiselle, both 24, helped draft a bill in the Legislature that would make it easier for tiny homes to be utilized as temporary dwelling spaces for the elderly, injured and disabled and located near the homes of their loved ones.

Local entrepreneurs seek legislation to ease restrictions on locating tiny homes

The tiny house movement isn’t only for the young and sprightly.

Option for a fourth Mounds View liquor store denied by city council


Mounds View’s former Snap Market at 2408 County Road I is being eyed by a possible tenant interested in opening a liquor store. The landowner, however, first needs to pay back taxes on the property before continuing the application process for a liquor license. (Jesse Poole/Bulletin)

Back taxes stall application for liquor license

Relatively small compared to its neighboring Ramsey County cities, with fewer than 13,000 residents, Mound View is home to three off-sale liquor stores, each located just off County Highway 10 and less than a mile apart from each other. 

The possibility of adding a fourth liquor store was voted down by Mounds View City Council last week at the recommendation of city staff, much to the appreciation of several residents in the council chambers that night. 

The 5-0 vote, however, was not based on the residents’ comments opposing the idea of a new liquor store opening at 2408 County Road I. Instead, the denial was due to ordinance restrictions that the applicant needed to sort out before continuing the application process.
