There’s an open meeting Saturday, Nov. 4, 10 am to 2 pm at Little Prairie United Methodist Church regarding a proposed 300-acre ethanol plant on Co. Rd. 8. The meeting will include presentations on the cost and benefits of ethanol and biodiesel, as well as perspectives from agriculture, conservation and environmental groups.
Dundas Planning Commissioner Bruce Morlan posted about this issue and some of the questions it raises, along with a schedule of meetings related to the proposal. Technical glitches make it impossible to comment on his blog, but we can have comments here, so I encourage everyone to read Bruce’s post, attend tomorrow’s meeting, and start a discussion.
