This filing seeks a ruling regarding Boonville’s restriction on a legal business activity.An expansion at the Liberty Mine is needed to provide fuel for the Warrick Power Plant, which provides all utility services to Alcoa’s Warrick Operations.The expansion plan for Liberty Mine, which has received preliminary approval from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, is not located in Boonville’s city limits or any incorporated town or city in Warrick County.Alcoa and its mining contractor conducted discussions with Boonville officials and the representatives from Save Our Homes to addres feedback from the county residents who live outside the city and closest to the mine’s expansion area.Alcoa even offered to take actions beyond what is required by increasing the 300-foot buffer zone to 800 feet and installing additional seismic monitors.Alcoa agreed to describe those actions in writing and publicly announce them at a Boonville City Council meeting, but Boonville refused to rescind its ordinance or schedule a meeting to do so.Previous StoriesNegotiations Underway for Liberty Mine Expansion – January 2018Coal Mining Controversy In Warrick County – December 2017Britney TaylorWeb ProducerMore Posts – WebsiteFollow Me:TwitterFacebook FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
