Quarry plan raises many concerns

Friday, May 16, 2008

To the editor:

I'm writing regarding a growing concern in our community over a proposed rock quarry that Strack Excavating wants to put in on County Road 319 off Route K. There are several concerns: families that have wells, all the blasting that would occur and could cause health problems and cracking of foundations. Not only this, but we have kids who play in the area, and heavy trucks would be going back and forth. In addition, there are several schools in the area that would be affected because of all the dust that would be in the air that we all breathe. We would like to thank you for your support. We need the entire community to help fight this threat.
