Our City Council has floated a $1,750,000 bond to construct Access Roads into the Sand Plant so that the heavily loaded trucks can get onto and off of our city streets, run electric power to the site, and construct water and sewer lines to the plant.

Canadian Sand and Proppant’s plan to build a sand processing plant in Chippewa Falls got the backing of the city council on Tuesday. The council voted 5-2, with council members Brian Flynn and Susan Zukowski voting against, to accept the recommendation of the city’s Plan Commission in granting a conditional use permit.
The permit allows Canadian Sand and Proppants Inc. to exceed the city’s building height limit of 60 feet. City Clerk Lynne Bauer said four people spoke to the council in opposition to the processing plant. Even if the council had turned down the commission’s recommendation, the decision to grant a permit would not have been reversed. The decision whether to grant a permit is the commission’s. The council did vote 5-2, with Zukowski and Flynn voting against, to approve spending up to $8,000 on a developer’s agreement, which includes bond documents for the project. This CUP was passed on to EOG.
