McGee Construction wins Maine permit for quarry

Councilors in August, Maine rejected proposal to delay relicensing McGee Construction’s for quarrying and blasting operations rejecting a proposal to delay relicensing the operator.

McGee is one of only two mineral extraction license-holders who are allowed to use blasting to free up rock in Augusta. The other, Quirion Construction, already received a license renewal for another five years from the Planning Board on April 25, reports Central

The licensing delay was proposed as a way to give city officials time to meet with a blasting expert and consider changing city blasting regulations before considering renewing mineral extraction licenses, effectively would have applied to only one entity in the city, McGee Construction.

McGee and Quirion could lose the right to quarry if the council were to change the city’s mineral extraction ordinance.
