    yes, could have been, but through the convoluted machinations of manufacturing and business, as well as the alleged ethical inadequacies of the company, it isnt. I am glad to see a local player make something work successfully though!

    In looking at the City council meeting agenda for last night there was nothing on there for Creative BioMass discussion.

    Actually all that means is it was scheduled to be considered other than that nothing.

    You'll have to find out when someone says something about what actually took place. If they publish the votes taken on their site then eventually it will show up. I just searched for the agenda when it was mentioned it wasn't there.

    I was talking to someone who was watching that on tv last night and all they were talking about was that Planned Parenthood thing. He said he did not see anything about Creative Biomass.

    Yep, waiting for a reporter to write something even a brief snippet on the paper's website.
    Last time It was tucked in a Planned Parrenthood article.

    I don't live in Fitchburg, just over the line, so I was unable to watch it on TV.

    They also post the meetings sometimes on a TV archive website. FATV.org we could watch for any updates for the 2/2/10 council meeting.

    Haven't heard or been able to find any new updates. It look like over the past month additional complains have been filed to the BBB to no surprise. A shame that no goverment agency has begun steps towards getting this joke of a company to stop selling their junk.

    Ha... so they don't answer the phone anymore, it goes to voice mail where they tell you to leave a message and they will follow back up with you within a business day. I wonder if they actually are.

    anyone have any new and interesting updates here?

    Nothing looks to have changed expect perhaps the price of their pellets. $269 a ton.

    BBB grade is still an F
    They have added those youtube videos on their web page... but other then that it still looks to be the same.

    No way in hell I would purchase their pellets at $175 a ton.
    never mind the price they are asking...

    Seriously, after how they treated folks this year, I wouldn't spend the gas money to go pick up pellets from them even if they were free. Crooks or incompetent, either way my pellet dollars go elsewhere next season.

    I feel sorry for this fellow's family. Despite OSHA there are a lot of unsafe workplaces, practices out there. Maybe this will shutter the company, maybe not.
    I wonder how their product quality, quantity has been lately and if they ever satisfied their backorders.

    All that aside, let's please remember that someone died here. I understand your frustrations, but keep the big picture in your vision as well.
