(SD)-Pennington County Allows Limestone Mining To Continue During Court Appeal

By: John Axtell Posted at: 09/10/2017 10:22 AM
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Pennington County says mining can continue at a limestone quarry south of Rapid City while the state Supreme Court considers a dispute over a proposed expansion of the operation.
    A county Planning Department report says the current mining activity by Croell Redi-Mix is permitted because activity is confined to an area that was disturbed before 1994, when the county began requiring construction permits for mining.
     Residents near the quarry south of Rapid City have complained about mining that has continued since the county commission last year revoked a permit for a proposed expansion.

       Croell successfully appealed the permit revocation in circuit court, leading the county to appeal to the Supreme Court, which hasn't issued a decision yet.
