New hearing requested on Fruitland quarry

FRUITLAND, MO (KFVS) - The community and school group against two proposed quarries in Fruitland wants another shot at stopping one of the developments.

On Monday, citizens and school leaders jointly filed an appeal in Cole County court for another chance at a hearing involving the permit issued to Heartland Materials.

They want to prove a quarry proposed by the local company would have a negative effect on health and safety.

The commission did rule that Saxony Lutheran High School did present good faith evidence regarding the application of Strack Excavating and an evidentiary hearing will be held on that proposed quarry.
