    I said it before this is a waste of time and the home owners money this is a dormant permitted quarry it will not be stopped and cannot be stopped they would be wise to get together with randy and talk about hours of operation etc its over done period they could just say tough take a hike and not compromise at all

    The big bad businessman goes out, buys a piece of land paying real estate fee’s, broker fee’s, and legal fee’s (neighbors could have bought it), takes the risk of putting in a road using his equipment that he purchased locally, fuels it locally, repairs it locally, pays someone good money to operate it creating jobs, buys insurance locally, sells the timber harvested, forecasts a need 3 years down the road keeping jobs, pays the property tax increase for the increased value received, satisfies a need in the market, creates a competitive market against the current companies providing the same dirt and rock demand keeping prices low (er) for the consumer, has a solid reputation for providing great service locally and let’s see…did I mention OWNS the land, his land and goes out and get’s city approval for this proejct.

    Now comes a group of complainers that are afraid that the owner of the land next door might get dust on their lawn or crack the water supply to their well forcing the above well respected and time proven businessman to sit through this circus. Ok, classy.

    City of Bangor, you want ambassadors to represent the City? As soon as you stop entertaining such absurd actions and political meetings you might get some people of quality to do that. Nobody is going to put their reputation on the line by spouting off  what a great business environment we have until events like this stop. I can’t believe I am agreeing with Pat.

    Harvey, you’re a great businessman that knows what and where and when you need to be someplace so I am not going to judge your actions but I find it sad that you have to take time out of your busy day running a successful business entertaining the complaints of a few that have zero right to have a voice on the subject.

    Some of us in the city respect what you are trying to do, most actually, and some of us are also ashamed of the actions by our “neighbors”

    Good luck to you.

    Now, stop messing around and go build me a new road for my new tax paying subdivision. Ha.

          Just wondering where you are getting your facts from, that’s all. I would think there is a lot more to it than what you are saying.

    Aceman, maybe you are thining of the other side of Union Street?  There is no dormant quarry at this site.  And before anyone says it, there’s no silver mine either – never was.  That’s just the stuff legend…
