Heartland settlement with city expires without JOBZ in hand


Fri, Oct 1st, 2004
Posted in Features

The recent settlement between the city of Preston and Robert and Elaine Maust and Heartland Energy & Recycling called for the city of Preston to pay Heartland $325,000 in total damages if the tire-burning plant is not accepted into the state JOBZ program by September 30, 2004.

The settlement said that “if Heartland is not accepted into the JOBZ program by September 30, 2004 for any reason (including but not limited to the inability to obtain resolutions in support of the application from the School District of Fillmore Central #2198 and Fillmore County Board of Commissioners), the City will pay an additional $175,000 (for a total payout of $325,000) by October 30,2004.

The city and or its insurance carrier had until August 30, 2004 to make an initial payment of $150,000 to the Mausts.

According to City Administrator, Joe Hoffman, it is up to the attorneys for the city and Heartland to decide how to proceed. Hoffman confirmed that the city’s attorneys are aware of the deadline.

The county is no closer to taking up the issue of Heartland’s application for a business subsidy. A meeting of the Fillmore County Economic Development Authority scheduled for this week was cancelled due to additional legal questions being raised. Once the subcommittee is finished, the matter will then go before the full EDA before being presented to the County Board. It is not known whether this process will be completed by the end of October.

The Mausts and City of Preston have the right to extend the deadline of September 30, 2004 by mutual consent. As of this writing, the settlement is not on the agenda of the Preston City Council scheduled for tonight.
