Don't allow Wheatfield company to expand there

Wheatfield Grain Co. bought up residential property in Wheatfield and plans to expand its operation to further spread dust from grain trucks, and grain particulates and noise from dryers.

The company sent out only 20 letters and apparently assumes since it has demolished the trees and residence it is a done deal.

The truck traffic endangers our children and damages the roads. Letting the company expand on residential property would lower residential property values in Wheatfield, especially the surrounding properties.
