Surprised our leftie "journalists" let this opportunity to diss Mercer Fraser pass

Suprised that our local "self proclaimed investigative" leftie " journalists" and environmental activists" let this one pass.

Excerpt from Mendo Voice:

MENDOCINO Co., 1/18/17 — After more than a year of negotiations between the now-closed Grist Creek Asphalt plant and the Mendocino Air Quality Management District over public the plant’s public health and emissions violations, the Mendo Air District is asking for help from the state to ensure plant owners comply with air quality rules. On January 5, they officially requested aid from the California Air Resources Board, in the effort to force the owners of the plant to follow all county and state regulations and address the required equipment and operation improvements.

Excerpt from Ukiah Daily Journal:

The Mendocino County Air Quality Management District has filed a lawsuit against asphalt manufacturer Grist Creek Aggregates, its managing partner Brian Hurt and Mercer-Fraser, which operates the hot mix asphalt plant near Willits.
The lawsuit alleges that all parties violated several sections of the California Health and Safety Code, including the release of air contaminants.
Over the course of the violations in late 2015, the MCAQMD says it has fined Grist Creek over $173,000, all of which is currently unpaid, and Mercer-Fraser, which is under contract with Caltrans for a project north of Laytonville, was allegedly operating its asphalt plant without a permit.
