Town of Menomonie (WQOW) - After a heated public hearing, a town board voted in support of a frac sand project on Thursday night.
The Town of Menomonie board voted 3 – 0 to rezone land for Vista Sand's proposal.
Vista Sand is a Texas company that wants to build a sand transfer facility in the town. Sand would be trucked in from a mine in Downing, and then loaded onto rail cars at the site.
About 50 to 60 people were at Thursday's meeting. More than a dozen people spoke in opposition, raising concerns about truck traffic and dust, among other things. At one point, the board threatened to call law enforcement after an outburst from a man in the crowd.
The project now moves forward to the county.
Operating Partner of Vista Sand, R.J. Sikes, says, "It's a long process. We appreciate all the comments and the energy and the time the town board members and civil servants made to the process. We appreciate it and we're honored that they've approved our request for rezoning and we look forward to the next step."
