The first moratorium discussed and voted upon was the Highland Lake Watershed Moratorium Extension. The Council voted six-to-one to continue the moratorium as amended. This moratorium will now allow for single home/residential construction; but limits are placed upon subdivisions andsite plans until September 20, 2018.
It was noted that the as soon as new ordinances are updated as it relates to watershed construction, the limitations placed commercial construction will be lift.
The second moratorium considered was a moratorium on New Mineral Extraction Operations. The Council voted six-to-one to place an emergency ordinance on new extractions operations. It was noted that this is a town-wide ordinance and does not affect the 16 quarries presently operating within the town limits.
