In the long run the law suit will eliminate more jobs than anything. Other businesses will see just how some operate in this town to keep other businesses from opening and they will look right over Falls City. This garbage is just the owners of SG trying to keep business as usual nothing more. Hope the farmers who would benefit from some competition around here go elsewhere to sell their crops and let that crew just wither away like SG wants the rest of the county to do.

Agree with you 100% sick and tired. Image is everything in terms of attracting companies and jobs. Such a shame that two or three people can hold a whole community behind.

Why is it that the city wants the community to vote on stupid stuff like "open burning" but they don't let them vote on more important matters like CGB coming to town and letting the foreign company take over. No wonder no one wants to shop in FC anymore! I think the people of FC need to WAKE UP and see what's really happening by letting a "GROUP" of chosen people make your decisions for you!!!!!

If you don't "get" the concept that the open burning is not a business and that CGB is well too bad. The burn issue was put on the ballot because for years there has been people on both sides of the fence talking to their councilmen. There was a questionaire in a recent utility bill that asked the customers what their feelings were to see if a large group wanted it one way or the other. Those results, although few where returned, showed about an even score. Therefore, the council decided to put it to a public vote. So you have an issue over what would be considered a pollution problem vs a new business wanting to come into the town. Maybe the "group" of chosen you speak of is the few who are afraid of a bit of competition, like the owners of SG amongst others.

As long as farmers get the dam grain sold who the hell cares. Fuck SG. And anyways that just means other elevators need to up there prices it's not like their poor. It's a rail operating elevator who will buy grain at higher bids so it helpful to farmers so gossip about something worth it

The "group" of chosen you speak of are elected officials who make the descisions for our community. EDGE, while for CGB, does not make the descision for them to enter with what ever benefits the city offers. The entire process has to be approved by the city council and mayor.

People who live in Falls City need to relize that this is an agriculture supported community. Without farmers, this town will die. CG&B is going to build their elevator somewhere, so why not take advantage of them building here? if certain farmers do not wish to conduct business with CG&B, then they can take their grain elsewhere as usual. This business will bring grain in from further distances (espically north and west) instead of going through town to Atchison Ks. or St Joe, which could mean more business for fuel, restaurants, and even motels. that results in more city taxes. Think about it!

Another corp is building a super elevator south of Hiawatha. They have an option on a large farm there. They plan on shipping entire train loads out by rail.
