Notorious Connecticut company acquires at least one, perhaps two, new sites WITHIN Charlestown
The notorious Connecticut-based Copar Quarry that has plagued its neighbors in Bradford and Charlestown has acquired at least one new quarry site within Charlestown’s town limits. That site is the 47 acre former Morrone Quarry off Route 91 (Alton-Carolina Road) near the Richmond town line.
An official transfer of ownership has not yet been filed with the town, but the employees at the Morrone quarry are now Copar employees and Copar’s fleet of Connecticut-tagged purple trucks is now moving material off that site.
I have also requested a copy of Copar’s business registration and license to operate in Charlestown, but apparently Copar has not filed with the town as required under Charlestown’s Code of Ordinances §147-2 and §147-7.
I did find a record of the transfer of ownership registered with the US Mine Safety and Health Administration. It shows the transfer from Morrone to Copar taking place on March 5.
