Permit Decision Expected

According to the Times-Leader, following what was the eighth in a series of public hearings on the proposed expansion of the Pennsy Supply Corp. quarry on Small Mountain Road, the Torrance Township, Pa., supervisors said they will announce a decision on the company’s application for a conditional use permit on Jan. 3.

Royce Engler, chairman, said there will be no other deliberations in the interval, but the governing panel, which also consists of Ben Ostrowski and Gary Zane, will take under advisement and study comments presented by advocates and opponents of the project. Engler did concede, however, that whatever the supervisors’ decide will probably not be the final word. Engler said he fully expects follow-up litigation from either side that could tie up the case in court.
