The project was pitched as a job generator in the town of Chase.

A 40 million dollar wood-pellet manufacturing plant proposed for an old sawmill site close to downtown.

But a group of concerned citizens were very vocal about pollution and health concerns.

Leroy Reitsma is the President and CEO of Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group.

She is among a group of concerned citizens who launched a petition against the location of the plant.

They received over 300 signatures.
