Mining moratorium could be lifted in La Salle County

Posted by wlpo on June 10, 2014

The La Salle County Board will vote in July to approve an updated comprehensive plan.  If they say yes to the plan, a moratorium on new mining developments will be lifted.

Land Use Director Mike Harsted says a gravel company is waiting for the moratorium to be lifted but as of now there are no more silica sand companies wanting to mine in the county.

The mining moratorium has been in place for over a year.
