On Tuesday, October 7, the Fillmore - Houston Joint Board of Health passed a resolution asking the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) Commissioner to require an Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Heartland Tire Burning Facility planned for Preston.
The Fillmore Joint Board of Health is made up of the ten county commissioners representing both Fillmore and Houston counties. The motion to approve the resolution was made by Commissioner Kevin Kelleher and seconded by Commissioner Larry Graf, both of Houston County. The measure passed 7-2 (one commissioner was missing), with Fillmore County commissioners Chuck Amunrud and Marc Prestby voting against the motion. Prior to the vote, there was a presentation about the proposed tire plant by a group of citizens. In making the motion, Kelleher told the group that while he does not agree with everything they had said, he believed that there were enough unanswered questions to warrant further review. Fillmore County Director of Public Health, Sharon Serfling, was instructed to send a memo to the MPCA commissioner regarding the Joint Board of Health’s action. Copies of the resolution will also be forwarded to U.S. Senators Norm Coleman and Mark Dayton as well as Governor Tim Pawlenty. No further action was taken by the health board on the matter.
