Developer Drops Fight for Silica Sand Mine!

On Friday, May 17, 2019, citizens in Jefferson County received good news. The developer had stopped his fight to build the silica sand mine, and dropped his lawsuit against the County for monetary compensation for being denied the permit to build the sand mine. This area of Hillsboro will be allowed to provide the habitat and ecological benefits that it has been providing for many years, and hopefully will continue to provide for future generations.
