Minsa Plant Hit With OSHA Fines
Thursday, January 29, 2015
Minsa Corporation’s corn flour mill, located southeast of Muleshoe on Hwy. 84, was cited for numerous health and safety violations this past week, according to information received from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

While OSHA noted 33 violations in its report — all of which appeared to be related to an inspection during July 2014 — the agency also assessed fines ranging from $3,600 to $6,300 per incident and totaling $151,200.

Attempts to contact a representative of Minsa for comment were unsuccessful.

According to the individual citations, the safety violations included blocked safety exits, faulty electrical equipment, and the hazardous accumulation of flour dust, along with insufficient or inappropriate efforts to remove that dust.

At Thursday’s regular meeting it was noted that a special meeting to either approve or disapprove the lease agreement is tentatively being set for Feb. 5., at noon.

Coming Down
Thursday, January 29, 2015
After nearly a year of planning, the old floral shop which belonged to the Muleshoe Area Hospital District finally came down to make room for additional parking.

The work was performed by Bailey County employees as “in-kind” labor the hospital district received in exchange for land adjacent to the Bailey County EMS building, which is to be expanded in the near future.
