The ongoing dispute Between Vulcan Materials and the town of Duarte, Calif., has been decided at the ballot box, and it’s Vulcan in a landslide. But the permitting battle is not over yet.
Residents of neighboring Azusa overwhelming voted in support of a new mining plan during a special election. In a lopsided win for Vulcan Materials Co.'s Azusa Rock Quarry mining plan, residents voted 1,972 in favor of the plan with 945 opposed. The election was a major victory for the mining plan, its supporters and the four council members who voted in favor of it.
