Members of the Houston County Protectors, an anti-frac sand mining group made up of county residents, have filed an ethics complaint against two members of the Houston County Board of Adjustment for what they deem unjust reasons for the board members’ vote to remove an alternate member of the BOA from his position.

Board of adjustment members Tim Orr and Greg Myhre, the complainants contend, did not provide sufficient evidence of a conflict of interest when they voted at a Jan. 28 meeting to remove alternate Kent Holen from his position. The vote disallowed Holen’s participation in a discussion regarding the appeal of an administrative zoning action related to the Tracie Erickson mine that was brought before the board.
