What the frac? (01/20/2013)
From: Cathy

and Lee Groebner

I have lived in St. Charles with my husband for 33 years.

We have raised our son here and have found St. Charles to be truly our home. On January 7, 2013, the city council decided not to accept the voices of 939 citizens of this community. The same citizens that pay to keep this city going, including city employee wages, water bills, electric bills, etc.... These citizens have requested action though a petition. Why does the city council continue to ignore 939 residents of St. Charles?

939 residents, which represent more than half of the voters who voted in the last election, have signed and requested action on an ordinance to: “Prohibit the mining, loading, unloading, storage, transfering, washing, and processing of industrial silica sand (frac sand) within the city limits of St. Charles, Minn.” The citizens have spoken and they will continue to request action.

The citizens have studied this topic long and hard. I do not understand why our city council would want to have

every child, teenager, and adult jeopardize their health. Air quality/water quality/water availability/quality of life—all put in jeopardy. For what? Money! Aren’t city councilmen supposed to represent our wishes? Your citizens want you to step up to the plate by taking action on the proposed ordinance signed by 939 citizens. Councilmen, it’s time to act!
