Press Release:  City of Long Lake v. City of Orono litigation

Post Date:         11/22/2023 3:40 pm

On November 21, 2023, Hennepin County District Court Judge Laurie J. Miller issued an Order for Contempt in the City of Long Lake v. City of Orono litigation.  The City of Orono (“Orono”) respectfully disagrees with the Court’s decision.  

Another hearing will be set in the near future, which Orono looks forward to demonstrating it is in compliance with the Court’s Order. Orono has a vested interest in ensuring the Long Lake Fire Department is able to service the community. At the same time, Orono has an obligation to plan for servicing its own community starting on July 1, 2024.

Orono, consistent with the Court’s Order, will continue to move forward with the establishment of its fire department and ultimately expects to prevail in this litigation.
