Council hears pleas for understanding, reconciliation over project; remains divided on veto

Email

WILLMAR -- The Willmar City Council failed 4-4 Monday night to override Mayor Les Heitke's veto of the council's April 7 rejection of the $350,000 state grant for the controversial Westwind Estates Third Addition housing project.

The mayor issued the veto in an April 8 letter to the council.

Council member Ron Christianson offered the override motion, based on the fact the Board of Zoning Appeals ruled there is no conditional use permit in place for the project.
