Mautino Forcing Hand Of Buzzi Unicem

Posted by wlpo on January 13, 2010

Buzzi Unicem may have to reopen its stretch of the Vermilion River whether they like it or not.

State Representative Frank Mautino plans to file a bill January 21st declaring the river a navigable waterway, forcing Buzzi’s stretch of the river to reopen to recreation.  After two people drowned last June near Buzzi, the company closed its stretch of the river and put up trespassing signs saying the river was unsafe and not a public body of water.

Mautino says changing the state statute removes all doubt.
