County quashes quarry quest



February 27, 2019 - 11:19 AM

Months of discussion and debate came to a head Tuesday morning when the Allen County commission followed its planning board’s recommendation and denied Mid-States Materials and landowner David Gant a permit to install a rock quarry on the south side of Humboldt Hill.

More than 20 interested citizens, including a handful of representatives from the Lecompton-based aggregate company, gathered in the courthouse assembly room in anticipation of the commission’s decision. 

“I’ve agonized over this,” said commissioner Bill King. “And I know we’re not going to make everyone happy here but I make a motion that we follow the recommendation of the zoning board and deny this request.”
