Commentary: Keep moratorium, let state debate play out
After a year and a half of monthly meetings it appears the role of the Goodhue County Mining Study Committee, which was formed to review county policy on frac sand mining, is drawing to a close.
As a member of that committee I have mixed emotions about the process. On the good side honest intelligent members of the mining committee and public discussed real concerns and upgraded the current mining ordinance. I have learned we have a very capable planning department.
