A controversial tree comes down; golf course gets cleaning done

Volunteers worked raking and picking up debris on the Benson Golf Course Sunday to help get it ready to open later that afternoon. The debris was from extensive tree removal and trimming done on the course this past winter. The tree removal and trimming was paid for by the club and its members.

The photo shows an ash tree that frustrated golfers playing hole Number 7 for decades. Its trunk and canopy sat nearly in the middle of the fairway. This past winter the tree came down, opening up the second shot for golfers on this par 5 hole. Some felt the tree should have stayed while others are overjoyed to see it gone.

City transfers its Fibrominn consent agreement to CPV

Monday Benson’s City Council unanimously passed a resolution that would transfer all its operating agreements with Fibrominn to Competitive Power Ventures (CPV).
For the past couple years, Fibrominn has been operated as a subsidiary of Contour Global. However, after the company was placed in receivership, Contour Global asked to transfer all of Fibrominn’s assets to CPV.
“Contour Global’s subsidiaries PowerMinn and FibroMinn, which operate the facility, are in receivership ‘as a result of a breach of contract and default under certain note agreements to the facility,’ according to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) document,” Infrastructure Journal and Project Finance Magazine reported.
“The companies are aiming to close the transaction by the end of March 2015, after they receive authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission,” the magazine said.
Under CPV, Fibrominn will become Benson Power.
