sand mining operation near silver lake
Clark Kauffman, Grover Hinebaugh, John A. Patterson and Robert N. Tuller appeared before the Board re a sand pit near Silver Lake and south of US 441 (SR 500). Mr. Kauffman was spokesman for the group, and he stated the operators of the sand pit are running out of sand where they are located and have requested the Zoning Commission to permit the removal of the operation to the north side of the highway. A petition signed by 75 or 80 citizens of Silver Lake Circle has been presented to the Zoning Commission requesting that the change in the zoning area around Silver Lake not be allowed. Mr. Goodson stated that prior to the hearing on the petition, the Zoning Commission received a letter from Silver Lake Estates withdrawing their applications numbers 3, 4, and 5, which constituted the applications, which would give them permission to move the operation of the sand pit to the Silver Lake area if these applications had been approved; therefore, the Zoning Commission considered this letter and tabled the applications. However, in December pipe was placed under SR 500, and this group of citizens was fearful that the mining operations would be started without any consideration of the residents of Silver Lake, and they were preparing to file an injunction and had employed Mr. Willard Ayers, attorney of Ocala, to represent them. This group now asked that the County Commissioners support the Zoning Regulations in this area as now in existence.
WHEREUPON, on a motion by Commr. Babb, seconded by Commr. Dykes and unanimously carried, the County Commissioners agreed to support the present Zoning Regulations in the Silver Lake area and to insist upon the enforcement thereof.
A group of citizens from Dona Vista appeared before the Board and stated that someone has dug up the road into their property, and they would like for the Commissioners to have the road kept open. This group was asked to go to the Abstract Office and find out if they have an easement. The group returned and said the easement was granted to an individual. The Attorney for the Board advised them as the easement was granted to an individual, the County has no right to go in there until they acquire a right of way. Mr. and Mrs. Warren M. Bell also appeared before the Board and stated they own the property on the Dona Vista Road, but have no easement. They have put up signs, and they have been destroyed. The Attorneys told them the same advice as above applies to them – have it settled in court.
Mrs. Lena Loper of Astatula appeared before the Board to find out if there is a law about keeping dogs on a leash to keep them from running over everything in people’s yards. The Sheriff was present and said we do not have such a law, but if anyone will swear out a warrant for the owner of the dogs, we will try to catch them. She was advised that the Board does not have any authority on this matter.
Mr. Theus said that the secretary who has been working for Mrs. Sudderth has resigned, and she has hired Mrs. Sylvia Brooks but will have to pay her $25 a month more than the other one. On a motion by Commr. Simpson, seconded by Commr.
