Frac Sand Moratorium All For Nothing?
Approximately 200 people packed the third floor courtroom at the
Winneshiek County Courthouse last week, both in favor and against a 24 month frac sand mining moratorium. The public hearing took almost two hours before the Winneshiek County Planning and Zoning Commission reached an agreement to recommend an 18 month moratorium to the Winneshiek County Board of Supervisors. But Tony Philips admits it may have been for nothing.
The County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on the matter in the near future.
