Gravel Pit Conflict at Cary Village Board Tuesday

Meyer Material is set to ask for a three-year extension on its gravel mining agreement at 7:30 when the Cary Village Board meets Tuesday.  The pit is right next to Fox Trails Subdivision.

Here is an email alerting folks to the meeting from 2008 leader Bruce Janu:

It’s been a long time since our last message back in 2012.

And, as we predicted back then, Meyer Material is back to get a 3 year extension on gravel pit mining.

They also want to reduce the amount of credit they need to provide the village for impact fees and land conservation.

They signed an agreement in 2008 and now want to make changes.

Meyer will present their annual report and ask for a reduction in letters of credit at the board meeting on Tuesday night, July 7, 2015.

The meeting starts at 7:30.

The group’s web site points out the company is presenting two additional reasons, besides the economic downturn, for not wanting to live up to is agreement:

  • “Unanticipated overburden volumes.” In other words, too much dirt on top of the gravel.
  • “Operational hours.” This is great. They are complaining that the agreement they made to mine during the week from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm has placed too much of a burden on their ability to complete the mining in time.

It is also noted that ‘Meyer Material has not added additional equipment or workers to get the job done in time and is just expecting to get the extension.”

  1. Be aware that sales tax for loads of product from all the ‘pits’ in McHenry County are collected at the point of delivery (mostly outside of the city).

    Where are all the State politicians in correcting this wrong?

  2. better check this out or you will end up with a 14-Million Dollar gravel pit like your unlucky neighbors did!
