County requests that TCEQdeny permit for concrete crusher

Lewisville Fire Chief Timothy

Tittle dies LEWISVILLE Fire Chief

DENTON COUNTY Commissioners passed a resolution Jan. 7 to formally request that the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality deny an air quality standard permit requested by Mutual First LLC. If approved by TCEQ, the permit would authorize the construction of a permanent concrete crusher at 5120 E. University Drive, Denton. Commissioners unanimously voted to oppose the permit, citing concern that the proposed facility would be too close to Lewisville Lake, a source of drinking water for multiple area cities, including Lewisville, Flower Mound and Highland Village. The resolution states that concrete crushing is known to produce silica dust and particulate matter that can cause serious health problems for people exposed for extended periods of time. “This location is not a suitable site

because of its proximity to drinking water sources,” the resolution stated. “Specically, the proposed site of the facility is on the banks of Lewisville Lake, the drinking water supply for millions of North Texans.” Commissioner Hugh Coleman said he believes that Mutual First LLC chose an inappropriate location for the facility. Denton County Judge Andy Eads said the court opposed the permit application out of concern for the health of county residents.

Timothy Tittle died early in the morning of Jan. 20 after years of battling cancer, according to ocials. Tittle worked for the Lewis- ville Fire Department for more than 40 years. “Chief Tittle was a ghter,” the Lewisville Fire Fighters Association said in a statement on Facebook. “He aggressively battled cancer and beat it back into remission multiple times. Even during the toughest times, his loyalty and dedication to the department and the city of Lewisville never wavered. He loved being our Fire Chief.” Tittle's funeral service was held Jan. 24.
