WRIGHT COUNTY, MN One area township has an update this week:
Middleville Twp. approves CUP for gravel/sand mining
At Tuesday’s Middleville Township meeting, the board approved a conditional use permit (CUP) for Jordan Ortquist, for mining gravel/sand on the former Sundblad pit in section 7 of the township.
“There were several neighbors at the meeting, and they seemed very relieved that someone is willing to take it over and get it cleaned up and restored again, which would be Jordan’s plan if the purchase takes place,” Clerk Joey Berg noted.
Also, filing for township offices will open Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013. Open positions include the supervisor position currently held by Jim Raymond (three-year term) and the treasurer position of Judy Forst (two-year term). The township election will take place Tuesday, March 12, 2013.
