Mining Operation Is Questioned

The August Marshall Town Board meeting began with several questions from Eric Schachtler, who plans to start a mining operation on his land on Shanley Road in the Town of Marshall.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation has oversight on the process. Schachtler, who lives in Oriskany Falls, questioned a letter which was sent from the Zoning Board of Appeals to residents who live near the proposed mine and who attended a meeting in 2012 to address the mining issue before it was suspended. The intent of the letter was to inform residents of current developments which would have a direct impact on them.

The full story is in this week's edition of the newspaper.
