Tuohy Furniture pays $21,000 pollution fine

This just rolled off the fax machine. It seems the government and funeral homes are the only ones that still send faxes instead e-mail.
Anyway, Tuohy Furnituure Corp. in Chatfield has paid a $21,000 civil penalty to the Minn. Pollution Control Agency for alleged air-quality violations.

It looks like Tuohy did not tell MPCA that the company was installing two paint booths and some new woodworking equipment. That needs a change to their air-emissions permit, evidently.

In addition, MPCA says Tuohy "provided misleading information" and "had not acted in good faith in its dealings with the agency."

I'll check on this.

I'd fax the Gov't a check for the money, or maybe even some fake bills.

To bad people can't just run and operate their business without interference. I'm all for clean air but this just seems stupid.
