Community Advisory Council
Established in 1998, the Community Advisory Council (CAC) to the Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend refinery provides community members with an opportunity to discuss and make recommendations to the company regarding environmental, safety and other issues of concern to the citizens living near the refinery.
Operating independently of Flint Hills Resources, the CAC serves as a community voice when Pine Bend seeks direct feedback regarding refinery operations and plans.
The CAC consists of 20 community members, two voting members and one non-voting member from the Pine Bend refinery, and a non-voting member from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Members serve three-year terms.
