Amending the conditions of the DB Quarry to allow: 1) trucks to haul materials out of the quarry on Saturday and 2) allow crushing operations to take place year round: The town board discussed allowing Saturday hauling out of materials from the quarry and whether to allow blasting/crushing year round.

A number of the neighboring property owners were in attendance. Residents were asking “why should we consider changing the current conditions of the quarry when the quarry operators are not following the current conditions as set in the Portage County Board of Adjustment decision.” Some of the specific concerns residents brought up were lack of notification when blasting was done. Trucks speeding in and out of the quarry on County Road DB. The crusher was supposed to be set up at the lowest possible level of the quarry to help with the noise, but it seems to be set up at the top level of the quarry. Work is being done after the agreed 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. hours of operation. Some trucks are leaving the quarry with excess material on the sides of their trucks and material is falling off the trucks on the roads. No annual report has been done and several people mentioned issues with water quality/quantity.

The board agreed these concerns should be addressed before any decisions are made. Chairman King stated he will reach out to Earth Inc and Portage County Planning and Zoning.
