    Well reasoned and amply supported by facts.

    jsf is there any reason Geneva’s 19 other pits aren’t sufficient, This well stated opinion demonstrated why the point of the mountain is uniquely ill-suited for a gravel pit.

    Dr. Moench, have you stopped using electricity brought to your home and office using copper mined that you objected to? Have you stopped traveling over roads made from the gravel and sand you are complaining about? Have you moved out of the home and office built with sand and gravel you are complaining about?

    We all understand the progressive notion of elitism, I have mine but you can't have yours that is being exhibited. It is reasonable to understand the economic cost increases you propose. We also realize you will pass those higher costs to your patients that can not afford the price increases you will enact.

    Maybe you can work to get cost effective changes that are not based on progressive elitism.

    During the I-15 rebuild we in North Salt Lake ate dirt 24/7 for two years. We could actually taste the dirt. I complained and complained as did others. The worst stopped only when the worst pit was mined out. The problem: lack of dust controls in Utah environmental law. Do everything you can to stop this expansion.

    I am proud to say I was instrumental in keeping a pit out of Highland during those years.

    "The Draper City Council will vote on this contentious issue Wednesday evening, 6 p.m. at Draper City Hall. We urge you to attend and speak up for protecting your family’s health."

    The Draper politicians will do what they always have done. Protect the interests of their political "donors". Constituents health and well being is not even a blip on their radar.
