City Adopts Resolution Urging Quick End To Blasting

City Councilors hope the blasting operations at the local airport will end soon. Just like the Albemarle supervisors, they have adopted a resolution that deals with the issue. Rit Venerus, who lives in Walnut Hills, says the damage from the blasting affects people who live outside his Albemarle County subdivision. He says it’s also damaging homes along Dickerson Road and in the Earlysville Forest subdivision. City Manager Maurice Jones serves on the three-member authority that oversees the airport (pictured), and the council hopes he will share what he’s heard with other members.
