SOUTHINGTON - The Planning and Zoning Commission extended Tilconâ€™s earth excavation operations on Welch Road for another two years at Tuesdayâ€™s meeting.
Assistant Town Manager and Town Attorney Mark Sciota said that the extension was a procedural contract renewal. No changes were made to the arrangement.
â€śThey have had a long-standing excavation on Welch Road and West Queen Street,â€ť he said. â€śThey run a very clean operation. Tilcon comes to us every two years to renew their contract. This was just another two-year extension with the same stipulations that they have always had.â€ť
According to town records, Tilcon has been operating at the site since 1957.
