From the Maryville Daily Times, Maryville Mayor Joe Swann responds to Vulcan threatening the citizens of Maryville with an expensive lawsuit:

"This is a response to the charge that the city of Maryville is 'wasting' money in its lawsuit to prevent the expansion of the quarry owned by Vulcan Materials Inc.," Swann wrote in the letter. "It is the job of the city to enforce its zoning laws and to protect citizens from operations that diminish the quiet enjoyment of their homes and property."


Applause to Mayor Swann for standing up for homeowners!

Who is he standing up for?

Is he standing up for the homeowners who consciously decided to live next to a blasting quarry? I guess there is no law against stupidity.
