The IDNR has announced that the public hearing for Sunrise Coal’s Permit Application #429 for the proposed Bulldog Mine in Vermilion County.
The IDNR staff should be on hand and familiar with the permit application. They should be available to answer some questions on-site, as opposed to the informal conference where they only took comments.
As before, please attend, even if you don’t wish to speak. It is important to demonstrate to the IDNR how many residents are opposed to this proposed mine.
What: Public hearing to make comments and ask questions. This will be the final opportunity to share comments with the IDNR. They will be required to approve or deny this permit 60 days after the public hearing.
