Sheridan County Approves Quarry Permit Extension

Posted in

The Sheridan County Commission discussed a proposed permit extension for a quarry in the county during their last commission meeting.

County Planner Mark Reid explained more about the permit extension.

According to the Public Works Department's Staff Report to the commissioners, they notified the applicant in February of this year of the upcoming expiration date of their permit, but the landowner notified the department of their intent to discontinue the quarry.
Since then the landowners have had requests for material and have decided to continue operation of the quarry, sparking the request for the permit extension, to allow them time to go through the full permitting process.

The commission approved the temporary permit for a 6-month time frame or when the new permitting process is completed, whichever is sooner.
