County leaders discuss mine issues

-A A +A
By Jeff M. Hardison

BRONSON - Levy County Commission Vice Chair Nancy Bell said the Strategic Aggregates Review Task Force Report has been completed on Tuesday.

During the Feb. 5 meeting, commissioners did not discuss the upcoming request for a special exception for a mine in the Inglis area, but Commissioner Lilly Rooks reminded her colleagues that last year the state tried to let the Florida Department of Transportation gain power to override county ordinances regulating mines.

David Bruderly, an engineer in Gainesville, recently sent Gov. Charlie Crist his opinion about the Strategic Aggregaates Review Task Force Report.

"Local government must NOT be taken out of the permit approval process for aggregate or any other type of mining project," Bruderly wrote. "In fact, I would argue that the role of local government must be strengthened so that local environmental concerns are fully vetted and understood prior to the issuance of any environmental or building permits."
