Mathy Construction considers quarry permit request

Mathy Construction, Onalaska, WI, which has a a mining operation in La Crescent Township, is working to ensure its project is in compliance with township ordinances, reports Houston County News.

Anthony Tomashek, vice president of Mathy Construction, recently spoke with township board members on the matter. The 40-acre limestone quarry that was the subject of discussion at last month’s board of supervisors meeting is located off of CTH 25 in the township.

The mining operation has been in existence for at least 20 years, before zoning regulations would have required a conditional-use permit for the operation, allowing the quarry to be grandfathered in.

Tomashek, while noting that he is not currently making any requests of the board, said the company is interested in obtaining a conditional-use permit to continue operating the quarry.

“At this point, it’s finding out what the process would be,” Tomashek said.

He said he wants to bring the quarry in line with two other limestone quarries in Houston County that operate under conditional-use permits. There are no plans to expand the mine, he said.

If the township is requested to consider approving a conditional-use permit, it will have to take into account any mining ordinance changes made by Houston County.

Zoning administrator Larry Hafner noted that Houston County may soon be updating its mining ordinance. He said the township’s ordinance needs to be at least as restrictive as the county’s. It can be more restrictive, but not less.

“We’re going to let them go through the process and then we’re going to follow that,” Hafner said.
