Buffalo County relaxing sand recommendations (02/27/2013)
From: Jeff Falk

Fountain City, Wis.

The Buffalo County Zoning Committee meeting on Feb. 21 was quite interesting. The Land Resources Department presented a draft for a revised non-metallic mining ordinance dealing with industrial sand mining. Early last year the C-FC school board voiced concern over high numbers of heavy duty diesel sand trucks on the roads at the same time as school buses. Since then the Board of Adjustment has inserted the condition for granting a conditional use permit of no hauling during times of day when school buses are on the road. The draft ordinance included this condition so that it would not have to be reconsidered every time a CUP was examined. But the zoning committee, with strong support voiced by Mr. Youngbauer who referred to the truck drivers as “professionals,” voted to remove the language. There was no mention of the school board being the original source of the concern.

Also, the County Health Department after a detailed literature review had recommended PM2.5 particulate monitoring. The draft ordinance makes no reference to this and in effect leaves air quality to the DNR.

Concerned county residents should contact the Buffalo County Land Resources Department, the county health department, the county Zoning committee, and county board members to express their opinions.
