Council will vote on mining permit in November


The Rosemount City Council reviewed a request for a large scale mineral extraction permit last week during its work session and the issue will next go to the Nov. 20 city council meeting for final approval.

By time the issue got to the city council the planning commission had done much of the leg work in tailoring the permit to ensure the city has some protections. The main issues that have come up are sound, dust, traffic and water quality.
