A representative of the Tobyville Community northwest of Marble Falls attended the Marble Falls City Council meeting Tuesday night, Oct. 3, to make it clear that health and economic threats from rock and gravel mining and processing are not limited to the southern borders of the city.

The window of opportunity for comments on an air quality permit application from Collier Materials, Inc. for the Tobyville area is more narrow as for the Asphalt, Inc. permit being considered near Baylor Scott & White Hospital.

A public information and comment meeting on Collier Materials, Inc.'s Proposed New Air Quality Permit No. 146397L001 will be conducted by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24 at Holiday Inn Express, 714 Corazone Drive, in Marble Falls. Comments are due by that day.
