Packed house attends Harris Tiller Corp. meeting
It was standing room only in the Harris City Council chambers Monday evening, Nov. 12, when residents came to a work session to listen to the parties involved in the construction and operation of the Tiller Corporation sand plant, which will process sand for fracking. Some came to listen to how the plant will impact Harris. Others came to vent their frustrations.
Representatives from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), which is in the process of taking input on the air quality permit Tiller Corp. has to have to operate the sand processing operation in North Branch, were in attendance. Also fielding questions were representatives from Tiller Corp., St. Croix Valley Railroad, and Interstate Energy Partners – the organization that will mine the sand in Grantsburg, Wis. It is the sand that will be shipped to the plant in North Branch that has raised the ire of some Harris residents. See more in Clark Natalie’s ECM Post Review story.
