Ashford Sand Mine Lawsuit Tossed Out

A lawsuit opposing a sand mine south of Campbellsport has been thrown out by a Fond du Lac judge. A homeowners group called “Stop the Ongoing Mine Permit” filed the suit against the Town of Ashford and Batzler Trucking two years ago after a 68-acre stretch of land was approved for the mine. Property owners were concerned about the noise and air pollution it would cause – and argued it would decrease quality of life and property values.
