  • The Sunrise Beach Planning Commission will meet this evening at the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District Headquarters on Porter Mill Springs Rd.
    The application by Dean McDonald of Magruder Limestone Inc. for a conditional use permit is on the agenda. Magruder is seeking to temporarily operate an asphalt plant in its quarry on Hwy. 5 in the village this summer.
    Magruder was awarded a contract to resurface and shoulders to nearly 28 miles of Hwy. 5 in Camden and Morgan counties through the Westside of the Lake area. It is subsequently seeking to consolidate its mining and asphalt operations for the construction at this site.
    The proposed CUP would allow an asphalt plant to operate at the quarry from July-December 2013.
    A public hearing was held at last month's meeting on the case.
    McDonald presented the Troy-Mo.-based company's case last month. A handful of residents near the quarry attended the meeting in opposition to the asphalt plant. The village has received three letters of support for the temporary asphalt plant.
    The commission tabled the case at its January hearing to further research Magruder's past record on noise and odor at temporary plants it operates at other locations in the state.
    The planning commission meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Feb. 4. The SBFPD Headquarters is located across from Hurricane Deck Elementary School. It is off of Route 5 behind the fire house on the highway.
