To the editor:
I am writing in response to the Two Rivers Cooperative article published last week.
It was reported that safety is a top priority for Two Rivers and the anhydrous plant is being built on the southeast side, due to the rarity of wind originating from there.
The wind may not originate from the southeast, but it surely blows out of there. We can see steam from Cargill at Eddyville, southeast of here, many times during the year.
Do all the citizens of Tracy and around want to be evacuated, or worse, if there's an anhydrous leak or a grain explosion?
I would appreciate their goal of increased profitability, but at what cost to Marion County taxpayers and Tracy residents? This area is not even in Marion County, it's in Mahaska County, but they want Marion County taxpayers to upgrade or rebuild the road through town.
I appreciate their goal to improve profitability, but should the taxpayers have to pay for their profitability? Ask your county supervisors, Agan, Kingery and Nichols to help do it right.
