Raleigh, NC - Jun 24, 2020

The Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources (DEMLR) will continue the digital public hearing on a permit modification for Wake Stone Corporation on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 to accommodate pre-registered speakers.

Since the number of registered speakers exceeded the allotted time during the June 23 public hearing, the Division Director determined it necessary to hold a second day of the digital public hearing to receive comments on the application. Based on current guidance to stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health, members of the public can participate online or listen via telephone.

The public is invited to participate online or listen by phone. Only previously registered speakers will have the opportunity to speak.

WHEN: Tuesday, July 7, 2020, 9:00 a.m.
