For the 2nd time in 6 years, Hanover council has turned down an application for an aggregate mining operation along Bristol Road.
David and Eileen Krueger had requested permission to allow the operation a mile and a half south of Highway #52.  Reeve John Driedger says council had a good debate over the proposal but in the end sided with many nearby residents who feared the operation would further deteriorate Bristol Road, create lots of dust and threaten the safety of school children waiting for the bus.  Driedger says the Kruegers did their homework and were successful in getting support from many neighbours.  There were also those who objected, including majority of council, which said if it wasn't approved 6 years ago, why approve it now?
