A visitor to NIT left this comment today. Do you agree or not?
I come to Mason City about once a week. I visit the Cargill plant. There are days, like today where the odor is (so) powerful that I retch, my eyes water, and I mustn’t breathe, or the stench would incapacitate me. I type this, huddled in a self contained pocket of air within my vehicle, waiting for my stomacher to settle and my head to stop pounding.
It seems the source is a nearby facility, run by Vi-Cor, that (does) ones not comply with city ordinances. This is indicative of a city with poor leadership who seems intent on torturing citizens and visitors until they leave for good.
Shame on all those responsible, especially those who have the power to correct this ludicrous situation yet do nothing.
It makes it impossible to form a positive or even charitable opinion of the city at large.
I need to lie down.
