Proposed sand mine at Lake Tishomingo officially denied

(Hillsboro) It’s official now…..the proposed sand mine at Lake Tishomingo near Hillsboro was denied by the Jefferson County Council earlier this week. County Executive Ken Waller says there was a very large turnout to voice their opinion at Monday’s night’s council meeting.

Waller says after the Planning and Zoning board decided against it last month, the council officially followed suit.

Midwest Proppant LLC in Arnold was the company wanting to build the mine near the Lake Tishomingo neighborhood.
