Once again our leaders have failed us.
The City of Macclenny voted unanimously to contract with Oldcastle for using the “grey water” for their sand mining operations. This quite literally is a overwhelming “two thumbs up” for sand mining by the city leaders.
When the majority of the residents have said “No” time and time again to sand mining, our city leaders go ahead and sign a contract with this company. Whether it is for ulterior motives (i.e. money under the table) or just simply because the city leaders don’t want to have to deal with the “grey water” issue, the simple fact is that it is not the place for Macclenny to be endorsing or signing a contract with a company before the issue has been settled with the residents and the county.
