Western Kentucky Minerals

Five Daviess County residents have filed a lawsuit over a recent decision to allow coal mining on nearly 700 acres of land. The suit targets Daviess County Fiscal Court, the Owensboro Metropolitan Planning Commission, and Western Kentucky Minerals.

Daviess County Fiscal Court has voted to allow a company's request to rezone 700 acres of land for coal mining. However, both supporters and opponents of the move say the issue isn't settled yet.

Daviess County Fiscal Court will vote Thursday evening on whether it should uphold a decision to rezone nearly 700 acres for coal mining. The Owensboro Metropolitan Planning Commission narrowly approved the request in May.
