MASON CITY – North Iowa Corridor / EDC Director Brent Willett told the city council Tuesday night that he is “tired” of the “overwhelming consensus” in the community regarding city council member Scott Tornquist’s performance as a North Iowa Landfill Board member. Some have said Tornquist alienated the board earlier this month when he lectured its members on the importance of OK’ing a long-term contract with a company called ERS.
“I take umbrage with that,” Willett said. “I’m tired of him being attacked for his approach.”
Tornquist only said one word at the deciding meeting, “yes.” The contract was defeated by the board.
