The Mining Committee's recommendations will be forwarded to the Planning Advisory Commission July 15 before a final vote by County Board Aug. 6.

The current Goodhue County mining moratorium expires Sept. 6.

UPDATE: The Goodhue County Board agenda's future meetings calendar incorrectly listed the date of the Planning Advisory Commission workshop as July 16. The commission will meet 6 p.m. July 15.
