Glenwood City Council tentatively approves frac sand mine agreement
With council members Crystal Booth and Ben DeGross objecting, the Glenwood City Council, meeting as a committee Monday night, concluded more than 18 months of controversy by recommending that the council approve a tentative agreement with Texas-based Vista Sand to operate a frac sand mine within city limits less than a half mile from the public school.
“I am happy. It’s been a long process. It’s time to move on,” Mayor John Larson said following the vote.
