On a unanimous vote the Winona County Board of Commissioners granted a conditional use permit for a temporary concrete manufacturing plant to be located adjacent to the Ridgeway Community School along County Road 12.
The plant will provide concrete for a project this summer to resurface Interstate 90 in that area and school officials had expressed concerns with truck traffic and dust.
Board Chair Marcia Ward said three additional conditions were added to the 9-condition permit including one that calls for the plant to be operational starting on June 2nd after the school is closed for the year.
Other additional conditions added include: allowing the plant to operate for only one year and a provision for a flag person to control traffic at the entrance to the plant.
The other nine conditions were recommended by the County Planning Commission.
