Just in from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) via email:
Due to the potential for severe weather/dangerous driving conditions, we are rescheduling the listening session in Marshall originally planned for tomorrow to Wednesday, February 24 – same time, same location (Open house starts 5:30PM, Listening session begins 6:30PM; SMSU Conference Center, Upper Ballroom). We’ll be distributing this information via our GovDelivery list, and the agency’s social media accounts, but please do share with anyone else who may have been planning to attend tomorrow’s session. We look forward to next week’s session in St. Cloud. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Anyone who has driven Highway 23 between Willmar and Granite Falls when there's any snow falling at all can appreciate this move. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for areas east of Redwood Falls, but roads closer to Marshall can get slick fast.
For more on the listening sessions, check out our earlier post, MPCA schedules 4 Clean Power Plan community listening sessions around state in February.
