The Department of Environmental Resources granted a permit to the New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co. that authorized the firm to deepen its Roaring Spring stone quarry by 50 feet. The permit had been under consideration by the DER’s district mining operations for nearly five years. NES&L had originally requested to deepen the quarry by 200 feet, but the permit granted restricts the lowering of the quarry floor to 50 feet from the level already permitted.
The Claysburg-Kimmel School Board of Directors, re-elected Vernon Walter and Barbara Garver as president and vice president, respectively.
The Martinsburg Municipal Authority voted to increase water rates for authority customers 75 cents per 1,000 gallons. The increase would mean residents who use the minimum amount of water would pay $2 more each month or $6 more each quarter.
Students at Claysburg-Kimmel High School raised $861 for the Claysburg Area Food Bank. Students needed only one week to surpass the goal of $600.
