The City’s brownfield selection committee has chosen HR Green, Inc. to oversee implementation of its EPA Brownfields Cleanup Grant.  These funds will cover costs associated with developing bid specifications and asbestos abatement activities at the seven-story former Rath Packing plant.  The looming brownfields facility represents a symbol of the economic devastation that dramatically impacted the community during the 1980s farm crisis.  City Council approved a Professional Services Agreement with the consultant at its meeting on April 1, 2024.
