Town of Angelo Reviews Draft of Sand Mine Ordinance

At the request of Jim Leverich, a member  of the Town of Angelo Planning Commission,  the Town Board agreed Tuesday night to review the Planning Commission's draft proposal for a sand mine ordinance prior to releasing it to the public.
Town Chair Tom Leverich said, "If it seems O.K. we could set a date for a special meeting and be done with it.  I don't want to get the public stirred up."
Board member Steve Treu, questioning license fee assessments and their enforcement, suggested fees be passed on to sand mines.  "We don't want to burden the rest of the town," he said.
Board member Warren Kastberg said, "Much depends on what happens in Little Falls," referring to a sand mine proposed by Mathy Construction in the Town of Little Falls where, unlike Angelo Township, there is no rail line.
The Angelo Sand Mine moratorium expires on December 31, 2012.
