WILLMAR — The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners will be hearing a presentation from Summit Carbon Solutions at its Tuesday meeting.

The meeting begins at 9 a.m. July 19 in the boardroom of the Kandiyohi County Health and Human Services building in Willmar.

Summit Carbon Solutions has plans to construct a 2,000-mile pipeline network to transport millions of metric tons of a carbon dioxide to a storage facility in North Dakota. The company has signed up more than 30 ethanol facilities in five Midwestern states, including Minnesota.

The proposed pipeline would cross diagonally across Kandiyohi County, from Bushmills Ethanol Inc., to the far southwest corner of the county, at the border with Chippewa County. There would be approximately 27.08 miles of pipeline in Kandiyohi County if the plan goes forward.

At Tuesday's meeting, the board will also consider a resolution objecting to the Minnesota Department of Human Services selection of participating heath plans for various medical programs within the county and giving the county the authority to retain legal counsel in the mediation proceedings between the county and the Department of Human Services.


Also on the agenda are two property nuisance abatement hearings; a proposed increase in Household Hazardous Waste disposal fees; a grant application to the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority for funds to update the Glacial Lakes Sanitary Sewer and Water District wastewater treatment plant; an update on the Central Minnesota River Watershed Partnership; an update on the county administrator search process; and an American Rescue Plan Act request to fund a line extension grant program, which would help connect properties to broadband services.
