News from Minnesota

According to The Star Tribune, Aggregate Industries has withdrawn a request for the city of Cottage Grove, Minn., to annex some of its land near the east metro suburb. The company, which recently has sought to expand, wanted Cottage Grove to annex 120 acres of its property, saying the city is more capable of providing needed services. The annexation request was filed with the city on March 16. Aggregate Industries, a subsidiary of Holcim US, did not explain why it was withdrawing the request in a letter to the city administrator, aside from saying the company had “made the decision to further evaluate our options.” The company’s Larson Quarry in Grey Cloud Island Township has been in operation since the 1950s.
