Finance & Commerce has a good follow on the Burrill ouster story and its impact on Elk Run. It's on the far side of the paywall, but here are the operative excerpts:
Burrill’s ouster will not affect the Elk Run project since the developer, Woodland, California-based Tower Investments, hasn’t had a relationship with Burrill and Co. for a couple of years, said John Pierce, Tower’s senior vice president...
In addition, Tower owed an estimated $1 million in overdue taxes as of April. Olmsted County officials were not immediately available to discuss whether the company still has unpaid taxes, and Pierce declined to comment on the matter.
Pierce said the Elk Run project is “doing very well” but refused to discuss the project further.
Karen Doll, Pine Island’s Economic Development Authority director, would not discuss the project either except to say that Burrill’s firing will not have an effect. Despite the massive public investment, she characterized the project as a private development.
“We do not anticipate changes to the plans that Tower Investments has for Elk Run,” she said Tuesday.
