Since coming to town, CES has put out much inconsistent information about the facility they want to build.

They plan to incinerate trash and as many tires as they can get.

Check out the following: When presenting at the landfill board meeting, they listed the company name as Creative Energy Solutions. A few weeks later, they said their name was Creative Energy Systems. I know it is only a name, but which one is it?

One week they were a gasification facility, a month later they were a pyrolysis facility. Which one is it?

They told the public they would send their toxic ash to Utah. Later they said they would not be doing that. Which one is it?

Then they told the public there would not be any toxic emissions or toxic ash produced by this facility. The Iowa DNR says that there will be toxins in both the stack emissions and in the ash by-product that will be put in the North Iowa Landfill. Who do you believe?

CES said this facility was not experimental in nature. The EPA defines pyrolysis as an “emerging technology for which performance data have NOT been evaluated.” Sounds experimental to me?

Do you trust people who give you unreliable information?

Why should this community trust CES? Are you concerned about this company building in Mason City?

Come to the Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting on December 6th, 4PM at City Hall and voice your opinion.
