Did You Ever Wonder . . .
. . . Why MnDOT would swap out a facility for a piece of land? Especially considering that the facility is immediately adjacent to US169, while the land is a bit further away? Is the facility too small? I’ve never seen the parking lot full. In fact I would be hard pressed to remember the last time I saw a MnDOT truck in the parking lot.
A cynic might say MnDOT knows something the rest of us haven’t figured out yet – that something being, when the 169/282 interchange gets built, the former MnDOT facility (soon to be our Police Station) will have to be removed.
. . . Why the MPCA logo shows a stylized hand holding (protecting?) land and water? Judging from their recent decisions regarding Jordan Gravel LLC, and PolyMet, preventable pollution seems to be not a priority. Of course, if pollution occurs, the MPCA will have to clean it up.
A cynic might say the bureaucrats are taking actions now to ensure more work in the future.
“We’re at the crossroads. Down one road is a European centralized bureaucratic socialist welfare system in which politicians and bureaucrats define the future. Down the other road is a proud, solid, reaffirmation of American exceptionalism.”
