MARBLE FALLS — An upcoming public meeting will address questions about a pending air quality permit for Collier Materials, a longtime quarry company that is seeking to expand its operations in Burnet County to include a rock crushing operation.
Collier Materials is one of two companies currently in Burnet County that has proposed a rock crushing facility and launched the process by applying for a air permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
The public awaits word on a potential public meeting for the other company, Asphalt Inc., which has plans for a rock crushing operation located just south of Texas 71 on U.S. 281.
Collier Materials would like to operate at a site in the 4600 block of FM 1980 (Tobyville Road), according to the permit application.
The state regulatory entity has scheduled a public meeting for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, at the Holiday Inn Express, 714 Corazon Road in Marble Falls.
The two-part meeting will involve an informal discussion period and a formal comment period.
