County, Coyote Creek come to agreement
By Chris Erickson
Coyote Creek Mining Company President Jim Melchior was on hand to discuss the current construction and maintenance agreement for County Road 25. The road is a gravel route south of Beulah that would lead from Highway 49 to the company’s mining location. Landowners from that area were on hand to offer their perspectives on the idea. The largest concerned seemed to revolve around exactly when the road would be paved.
Melchior opened the discussion by stating his company had been working with State’s Attorney Jessica Binder on language concerning maintenance.
Binder said the agreement was updated to reflect language that was already in place with other road agreements, such as the one with Basin Transload. That agreement’s maintenance portion called for such items as dust control and snow removal.
