TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)- On Thursday a group of Americus residents found out a stone quarry they are against is one step closer to becoming reality. But they are not giving up.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources issued a permit to Rogers Group Inc. for its proposed stone quarry about a mile north of Americus off Old Indiana 25.
The permit is one of the group’s final stages before beginning construction on the site. The Rogers Group, founded more than 100 years ago in Bloomington, employs more than 1,400 people and operates in nine states.
