The Community Advisory Council to Flint Hills Resources is made up of members representing the diverse interests affected by the operations of the Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend Refinery located in Rosemount, MN. Our mission is to provide two-way communication between the community and refinery management. CAC members have consistently worked to further its mission, including seeking third-party consultants when needed to lend credibility and expertise to the CAC’s efforts. And the CAC has asked a variety of questions – some very challenging – to which FHR has stepped up and answered.
The CAC provides members and neighbors with an opportunity to discuss relevant topics. The Council also makes recommendations to FHR regarding environmental, safety, and other issues of concern to the citizens living within close proximity of the refinery. And, the CAC serves as a community voice when FHR is seeking to receive direct feedback regarding refinery operations and plans.
