Viewpoint: Commission's opinion on incinerator ignored
I am deeply concerned over the action taken by the Cottage Grove City Council on the 3M Incinerator proposal. Not only did the City Council ignore the recommendation of the Cottage Grove Planning Commission, it has hamstrung our city's largest employer without providing any environmental...
