A possible special election to reverse a recent decision made by the Pennington County Commission to allow an asphalt plant to be built near a mobile home community and youth soccer complex may soon be held, reports the Rapid City Journal. Opponents of the plant are currently organizing and looking to gather the needed 3,573 signatures needed on the petition to bring the decision to a public vote. Western Construction, the company behind the asphalt plant, says that the special election is not neccessary due to current regulations on asphalt plants as well as how emissions dissipate once in the air.
