Mountain Mist Poll
We’d like to hear your thoughts on the recent ruling regarding the Mountain Mist Mine expansion. In a recent administrative hearing, Tim Burnette and fellow residents from the Hicks Chapel community argued against the expansion, citing risks to their natural water source. Despite their efforts, the judge ruled in favor of the state, upholding the mining permit’s scope. This ruling underscores the role of the NC Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) in addressing citizen concerns against state agencies. What’s your perspective on this issue?
