Esser Global Returns

Tuesday, Itasca County Commissioner drafted a letter to Minnesota Governor Tim Walz asking for direction for the future of the former Essar plant. The plant construction sits idle while ownership, controlling interests, and permits are worked out. Mesabi Metallics, Inc currently holds the permits for the project.
In a letter, the county board asked the governor to consider one of two options; either work with a company that acquires Mesabi Metallics or allow Mesabi Metallics to work with Global Essar (who has reemerged as a stakeholder in the project).
The letter will be circulated to other local government and school districts for possible additional signatures.

Commissioner Terry Snyder told the board that he had concerns about taking a job away from the private sector.
On a 3-2 vote, Commissioners Snyder and Ives the dissenting votes. Adam estimated about 10 cases a month and said her department could handle the extra work without adding staff. The agreement only runs through the end of the year.
