The ground can now be broken on a new bulk fertilizer storage facility for Cavalier Agrow in Meadow Lake, once two lots become one.

At this week’s city council meeting, a public hearing was held to give anyone with questions or concerns the opportunity to ask questions of the developers. There were no objections brought forward in person or in writing.

Coun. Conrad Read asked what kind of materials would be stored at the facility.

“It’s standard fertilizer, there’s not going to be dangerous goods stored out there?” he asked.

Martin Detillieux, President of Cavalier Agrow, confirmed that it would be a safe storage facility.

The new facility will be adjacent to the current location, located at 23-27 Industrial Cres. in the city’s southwest corner, and work can begin once the company applies to the provincial government land title department to blend the two lots together.

City administration said the process doesn’t typically take longer than a month, after Coun. Merlin Seymour asked what timelines might be to start the process.
