Axley’s aggregate attorneys have done a considerable amount of permitting in the aggregate industry. The aggregate industry consists of non-metallic mining, including limestone; sand and gravel; and frac sand operations. The non-metallic mining area is led by Buck Sweeney, who, before becoming an attorney, worked as a civil engineer for Martin Marietta and ran a family sand and gravel operation in Edgerton, Wisconsin. Buck has worked in the aggregate industry his entire life and is familiar with all types of non-metallic mining operations.
Permitting includes assisting with Town Board Meetings, County Meetings, Boards of Adjustment and, in certain cases, appeals to the Circuit Court. Our team also assists on permitting with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on air, water and operational permits. We work on limiting the growing “Police Power” ordinances and licenses that Towns and Counties are using to expand control.
Wisconsin has the best frac sand in the country. Permitting of this important resource is a vital portion of Axley Law Firm’s practice.
