County to take final vote on Nisbit frac mine application (09/30/2012)
By Emily Buss

After a month and a half of debate, the Winona County Board will take a final vote Tuesday that will either shut down or give the go-ahead for a proposed 19-acre frac mine in Saratoga Township.

David Nisbit approached the commission in mid-August seeking a conditional use permit (CUP) to mine for frac sand in Section 35 of township land, the first application the county saw after the one-year moratorium on new mines was lifted.

During an open hearing last month, the Winona County Planning Commission recommended 37 conditions for the CUP, which Nisbit agreed to.

Most recently, concerned citizens urged the commission, through a petition, to require Nisbit to conduct an Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) before mining operations begin. The Winona County Planning Commission voted to recommend the EAW not be required; the Winona County Board will make a final decision Tuesday on whether the environmental study will be required.

The Winona County Board will meet Tuesday at 9 a.m. at the County Government Center on Main Street.
