Following the conclusion of the Ellis County Public Building Commission meeting, the Ellis County Commission will consider a conditional-use permit for a new gravel pit to supply Ellis County Road and Bridge Department with gravel, located on Saline River Road, at its regular meeting, all beginning at 5 p.m. Monday at the Administrative Center, 718 Main.
“It’s part of the zoning process,” said Karen Purvis, Ellis County zoning administrator. “They have to follow the rules too.”
The property belongs to Donna Simpson/Simpson Irrevocable Farm Trust. Approximately 5 acres will be leased to provide gravel for the northern portion of the county for roads, Purvis said. The area is zoned as agricultural.
The commission also will consider the county smoking/vaping policy, purchase of four servers, appointments to the joint planning committee and a spray rig for noxious weeds.
