Sparta ethanol plant battle ends in a draw
A long-running legal battle over a proposed ethanol plant in Sparta may finally be over with nothing to show for it.
A deal has been approved in which Century Foods will buy 80 adjacent acres, where the Coulee Area Renewable Energy group was planning to build its ethanol plant.
Century will pay $2.5 million for the land and other rights.
Meanwhile, the energy group agrees not to build within three miles of the site and all previous legal matters will be dropped.
