County narrowly approves mining ordinance changes
After a contentious 3-2 vote, the Goodhue County Board approved a list of amendments to the county's mining ordinance Tuesday afternoon. The board will consider making additional amendments and the possibility of extending the county's mining moratorium for another year before it expires Sept. 6.
The motion was forwarded by Commissioner Ted Seifert and seconded by Commissioner Dan Rechtzigel. Commissioners Ron Allen and Jim Bryant voted against it.
