Waltham voters say no to new sand mines

Posted by wlpo on November 4, 2014

The people of Waltham Township have spoken and they do not want any new sand mines. An advisory referendum asking if future requests for sand mines should be permitted failed with 84 percent of voters voting no.

The push for the referendum came after the Utica Village Board gave permission to a mining company to open a mine north of the Love’s Travel Stop.
