Saxony Lutheran High School’s appeal of the Strack Excavating mining permit is now in the hands of a Circuit judge. The Missouri Land Reclamation Commission granted Strack a permit to operate a 76-acre limestone quarry north of Saxony Lutheran High School September 22nd, 2011. The order grants the permit on the condition the boundary be 1-thousand feet from the Saxony property line. But the high school filed an appeal last October in Cape County Circuit Court. They contend the Commission didn’t have the authority to grant the permit WITH that boundary condition. The property line originally proposed by Strack was only 55-feet from Saxony. The case was assigned to Judge William Syler. He heard arguments from both sides Thursday in Jackson. The judge took the case under advisement and will rule at a later date.
