"But even the auto-generated emails allow for customization," he said. "So if you put in, 'I don't like the way the commissioner combs his hair,' now you've got two comments, and it becomes unique."
The county never took "a hard look at issues raised during the EAW and CUP process, argued attorney for the appellants, James Peters, in a written court brief. In response to valid issues raised in public testimony, the county gave such cursory responses as "comment noted," Peters stated. The county's failure "to consider the truck traffic, air quality from crystalline silica dust, water use, noise, [effect] on visual resources, stormwater runoff, and negative impacts on property values failed to meet [county] ordinance requirements of a thorough and complete review of a proposed project," and so the court should overturn the CUP, Peters wrote. Evidence shows that there would be significant environmental effects and an EIS is needed, he concluded."
"I think there was a lot of trust put in that position," Wabasha County Board Chairman Don Springer said. "We have controls to make sure that doesn't happen again."
