A proposal for an ethanol plant near Aurora goes before a Brookings County board next week. VeraSun Energy wants to build a plant that could produce 100 million gallons of ethanol per year. Aurora is southeast of Brookings.
The Brookings County Planning and Zoning Commission held a special meeting to hear the proposal and take public testimony, said David Rusten, the county zoning supervisor. Rusten said the plant would be located on about 60 acres
