Complaints lead Granite Falls to regulate hot mix operations


GRANITE FALLS -- Complaints by citizens about emissions from a hot mix plant operated within the city limits have led city council members in Granite Falls to consider an ordinance to regulate the activity.

City Council members on Monday approved the first reading of an ordinance. It will require a conditional use permit to operate a hot mix plant within the city limits, and it sets limitations on their operations, according to City Manager Bill Lavin.
