WABASHA — A Calgary, Canada, firm plans to build a facility along the Canadian Pacific railroad tracks on the northwest side of Wabasha to load rail cars with silica sand mined in Wisconsin.

According to its conditional-use permit application filed with the city on Sept. 5, Superior Sand Systems predicts about 200 hopper trucks, each loaded with 25 tons of sand, would cross the Mississippi River bridge in Wabasha, travel about 10 blocks to the facility and be loaded into large storage tanks. The trucks would return to Wisconsin by the same route.

Should the Rochester City Council increase the local sales tax by 0.25% to pay for the city's share of Destination Medical Center expenses? The sales tax rate would become 7.875%.

If the City Council is going to approve the DMC development plan later this month, it also should consider a 0.25% sales tax increase to pay for it, says City Administrator Steve Kvenvold. "The sales tax is the only, really, revenue source sufficient to cover the city's DMC obligations," he said Tuesday.
