Dear Iowa Utilities Board, 

The current permitting hearing for Summit Carbon Solutions’ will create a problem for our farmers. The October date falls right in the middle of harvest and will force farmers and landowners to choose between tending to their crops and participating in the permitting hearing. 

The summer months have been suggested as an alternative and I agree that June and July are better options. This will allow farmers impacted by the project to attend the hearing without worrying about meeting harvest deadlines. 

Thank you for your time,
Mitchell Williamso
