Sadsbury Township supervisors held their February public meeting with Supervisor Kevin VanHonk leading the salute to the American Flag. Supervisors Lyle Hoovler and Bonnie Smith were in attendance and Secretary Rose Mumau took the minutes. There were three citizens present.

The meeting minutes for January were approved, along with minutes from the Robert Hanna Conditional Use Public Hearing.

For Public Comment, representatives from Lakeland Sand and Gravel were present to talk to the Board about obtaining a mining permit.

They wish to extend the mining of sand and gravel in the area located next to current operations.

Solicitor R. Charles Thomas told the men that there are no “special exemptions” permitted under the newer Township Ordinance, since the property is located within the Conneaut Corridor.

The men would have to approach the Sadsbury Zoning Hearing Board and apply for a Zoning Amendment and a public hearing. Mining was permitted in the previous Ordinance.
