TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The vote that would put a stone quarry in a small Tippecanoe County town has been postponed to next winter.
According to the Area Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) of Tippecanoe County, the requests to construct a stone quarry on Old State Road 25 near Americus have been scheduled to be moved to the BZA's meeting in January.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) listened to dozens of Americus residents at a meeting Tuesday night. Almost 400 residents petitioned for the meeting and roughly 125 people showed up to tell the DNR why they oppose the proposed mile-long stone quarry.
Some officials also expressed questions and concerns, including Delphi Mayor Randy Strasser.
As WLFI previously reported, just last week the vote on the stone quarry was postponed, however the specific date for the postponed vote wasn't announced till Wednesday.
