Town of Grant Delays Sand Mine Action

Oct. 19--More than 100 people attended the Town of Grant meeting last night, which was  held at St. Matthew's Church because the Grant Town Hall only holds 50 people. 
No action was taken on the proposed sand mine ordinance nor on extending the moratorium beyond its November 9 expiration date.   Responding to comments from more than 30 Town residents Town Chair Doug Lambert and Board Members Tim Wilder and Brian Katzenberg set a second meeting, for action on the Ordinance and extension of the moratorium, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, October 30.  

The meeting is scheduled to be held at the Town Hall.
Representatives from U. S. Silica, the company proposing to build a 800-1,200-acre sand mine in the Town of Grant, did not attend.
