There's a resolution online that the body will consider to support Senate bills that urge a state-wide GEIS for frac sand mining; if adopted, the document will be sent to the Minnesota Senate Environment and Energy Committee meeting on Tuesday, February 19, noon, in Room 107 of the State Capitol.
But that discussion probably won't provide the fireworks.
It'll be the consideration of Red Wing Mayor Dennis Egan's new job lobbying as the executive director of the newly formed Minnesota Industrial Sand Council (a division of the Aggregate & Ready Mix Association of Minnesota).
As it turns out, the editorial board of the Rochester Post Bulletin aren't the only ones calling for Egan to step down as lobbyist or resign as mayor.(Read the PB's call at Our View: Red Wing mayor shouldn't serve two masters).
Here's the pdf we downloaded of the citizen's complaints posted at the Red Wing City Council's page. Since the city posted the 40-page document without redacting contact information, we're not altering the file.
