Approval granted for Jackson Co rock quarry

(MSC News)--Approval has been granted for the establishment rock quarry in Jackson County, about six miles south of Denison.

The Holton Recorder reports the Jackson County Commission this week approved a zoning change and special use permit for Mid-States Materials, of Topeka, to operate a rock quarry on property located at 142nd and W Roads.

The Commission also approved an agreement between the county and Mid-States that designates a haul route for trucks traveling to and from the new quarry.

As part of the agreement, the newspaper reports Mid-States will donate 4,000 tons of rock to the county in order to maintain the haul route.  In addition, Mid-States will apply 150 feet of dust control in front of any residence, intersection or business on the designated haul route.

The new quarry will operate from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

The last quarry in Jackson County was operated by Hamm Companies on K Road in Circleville, but the company began phasing it out of production in February 2013.
