Bob Coppolo of Weedville said to his knowledge, not one blasting permit has come through Jay Twp. and asked the supervisors if they had any additional information on the subject.
"I'm not even sure if they have a license to do it. I've asked them and they've ignored me," Supervisor Fran Gustafson said.
