Local Homeowner Complains About Quarry Trucks

Cookeville city manager Jim Shipley says that officials will be contacting the owners of a local rock quarry Friday to make sure they are complying with regulations concerning the covering for their trucks. A local homeowner complained to the city council Thursday night that some of the trucks are not in compliance. Judy Butler said, "We are having a lot of problems with trucks not covered. There are rock and gravel all up and down Highway 70, where they're piling them high and falling off. There are certain regulations that they have to meet and they're not meeting them, so I would like for (the council) to consider whatever needs to be done in those situations." The quarry owners have been at odds with neighboring homeowners for several years.
