Greenon Board of Education Statement on Mining Permits

After careful consideration of the information presented and discussions with the entities involved, the Greenon Local School District Board of Education opposes the approval of permits for mining in our district that would disrupt the homes, lives and education of many in our community. The Board is pursuing options to submit a formal statement of opposition detailing its concerns on this matter.
As a school district, our primary obligation is to act in the best interest of the children, families and community members who make up the Greenon Local School District. We believe the potential risk to water quality, the decreased quality of life, and the environmental and economic impacts of the issuance of these permits would be detrimental to our community.
