City Remains Committed to Continuing Opposition of Asphalt Inc.'s Facility and Proposed Land Use

The City of Marble Falls is disappointed in the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) decision to issue Asphalt Inc.’s Standard Air Quality Permit. Like many other concerned organizations and citizens whom took the time to oppose the permit, we have received the TCEQ comments issued on November 30, 2017.

The City remains committed to continuing its opposition of Asphalt Inc.’s facility and proposed land use, therefore we are researching and consulting experts regarding the options moving forward. At the Tuesday, December 5 City Council meeting, the Council approved a motion to authorize City staff to file appeals/motions against Asphalt Inc.’s TCEQ Air Quality Permit issuance. As the City has annexed a portion of the tract, the City has development jurisdiction for a majority of the Asphalt Inc. tract of land and we will ensure Asphalt Inc. meets City and other applicable agency requirements/processes for any development of the land.
