AMERICUS, Ind. (WLFI) — The Americus Area Community Coalition informed its members there might be another bill put in place at the state legislature.

It's a bill in favor of the Americus stone quarry.

The AACC has been fighting to reject the building of the quarry for more than 5 years.

The coalition held its first meeting in over a year at Wolfe's Campground Rec Hall.

The non-profit group is concerned about the stone quarry being built in a flood plain.

It says it could impact both business and nature around Americus.

Co-president Kay Miller says it was time to give an update to its more than 300 members.

The ultimate goal is to keep our rural lifestyle and our rural values and the respect for one another," said Miller.

She said to keep an eye out for the bill.

The AACC plans to meet again next year.
