Buffalo County moratorium (09/30/2012)
From: Joan Schnabel

On Wednesday September 26, the Board of Adjustment (BOA) in Buffalo county voted unanimously to deny the permit for the Glacier Sands/7 Sands mine. Thanks to the BOA for listening to the concerns of citizens and putting the welfare of the county above the immediate gains of a few. Thanks, too, to the people who wrote letters, sent e-mails, gathered petitions, showed up at endless meetings and educated themselves and others on this issue. And thanks to the C-FC School Board for standing up for the welfare and safety of the students.

Still to come sometime in October is the BOA meeting on the Larson Stanton Johnson/Glacier Sands mine. This mine is proposing two haul routes, one going north and one coming through Alma, past C-FC School and through Fountain City. The quest for a moratorium extension continues to work its way through the county process. The zoning committee has recommended a six-month extension. Subsequent to this, the health and human services committee recommended a moratorium, but did not specify duration. There will be a public hearing on this moratorium extension October 5 in Gilmanton, from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., and then on October 16 there will be a vote by the entire Buffalo County Board of Supervisors. Please let the Buffalo County Board know that you support extending the moratorium. (roxann.halverson@buffalocounty.com)

Again, kudos to the BOA for acting in the best interests of all of Buffalo County.
