1. Phyllis Morgan, 4621 Newell St. Waterloo.

As I said, thank you for giving me a chance to talk finally. My property is in between the city limits and where this proposed power plant is.

I have said No No No for annexation. And…the media, ah, lots of the media have come to my place and had some discussions. And…I am a farmer and I am with the farmers. And I can’t see where the city wants to take over all this property way out in the country and make a fancy conservation area. Some of these days, when you have to go to the grocery store you, better stop and think about where some of this food is coming from.

And I would like, before you say No, or before you say Yes, I should say, I suggest you come out and talk to the people in this area on a one-on-one basis. Thank you.
