here are two projects in process, the Hi-Test silica smelter in Newport and the BNSF bridge over Lake Pend Oreille, that will potentially have enormous impact on our water and our air in Bonner County. Who can we rely on to protect Lake Pend Oreille? How are local concerns being addressed?
In the case of the bridge, BNSF held public meetings to take questions. The Bonner County Board of Commissioners declined to give input.
The the case of the smelter, a scoping process is underway. The Bonner County Board of Commissioners declined to give input.
What questions should the commissioners be asking? Steve Lockwood has asked them and that’s why I am voting for Lockwood for District 3 commissioner.
