Questions for county on proposed permits

A few representatives of the agricultural business industry questioned details of Mercer County’s proposed permit program at the Mercer County Commission’s regular meeting March 7 in Stanton.
The commission had the first of two public hearings in the adoption process of a new county permit system, which would lower the county’s weight permit limit from 90,000 pounds to 80,000 pounds, with length not to exceed 75 feet and width not to exceed 8.5 feet. Agricultural permits would stay at 90,000 pounds.
