Grand Forks County approves grain elevator expansion

GRAND FORKS – The Grand Forks County Commission has unanimously approved a grain elevator expansion project in Arvilla, despite complaints from some local residents that the existing facility is already too loud and dusty.

Columbia Grain Co. already operates a 2.3-million-bushel shuttle train-loading elevator complex and will add a 35,000-ton bulk fertilizer warehouse, a new storage bin, two workshops and a new office building.

The commission approved the special use permit with conditions that the company control dust on roads and at the elevator.
