Now the district has a trust problem that has the league calling for separation of the district from the county board. But District President John Hoscheit said gravel mining isnt going to happen; its a dead issue, and anyone still fixated on gravel mining probably has an alternate agenda, such as not liking the Longmeadow Parkway project.
