Lawsuit Against LeSueur 25 Jul 12

A court date has now been set for a lawsuit against the City of LeSueur. A group of LeSueur citizens have asked city leaders to amend an ordinance relating to public nuisance liability, before approving a proposed plant that would turn silage and food waste into electricity. The group is reportedly concerned about the project’s potential for noise and adverse health effects, and claims that a petition signed by more than a quarter of the city’s residents was ignored. They’re suing the city in an effort to allow city residents to vote on the proposed ordinance, as reportedly called for by the city charter. Arguments in the case will take place in LeSueur County Court beginning August 31st.
