RMR to sue Garfield County
Rocky Mountain Resources has elected to sue Garfield County instead of bringing their operation into compliance with the permit or asking the Garfield County BOCC to amend the permit. RMR claims that Garfield County doesn’t have any rights to protect the citizens from harmful mining operations. As stated in the Post Independent article, RMR QUARRY OWNERS SUE GARFIELD COUNTY TO GET OUT OF PERMIT VIOLATION DEMANDS, “RMR said in its complaint that the county has no authority to enforce its permit because federal permits from the Bureau of Land Management supersede local government orders.”
