Westerly Granite Co considers quarry sale to municipal authorities

The Comolli family is open to the possibility of selling its 108-acre Bradford quarry near Westerley, Rhode Island, to the town, the Westerley Sun reports.

George Comolli said that while he and his family have not been contacted by the town, the family “would entertain any offer to purchase the property as long as it is for a legitimate municipal use.”

The family’s Westerly Granite Co currently leases the property to Cherenzia Excavation. The quarry has been the source of considerable public complaint since mining operations at the long-dormant property in the village of Bradford, began in late 2010.

Connecticut-based Armetta, successor to Copar Quarries, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last year. Copar Quarries began operating in December 2010.

The nearly five-year ordeal that pitted local residents, municipal and state officials, company representatives and the property owner against each other was rife with lawsuits, mediation sessions, public meetings, conflicts of interest and unpaid creditors.
