DEWITT — A recent 8-0 vote at the DeWitt Charter Township Board of Trustees Meeting gave the ET MacKenzie Company renewal for their five-year special use permit grant. The ET MacKenzie Company had a renewal of their special use permit up for debate at the Oct. 26 meeting. The renewal, which is required to be approved every year of the five-year grant, was in the second year, according to Ron Clark, an ET MacKenzie project manager. The grant is for use of the Clark Road Pit located between Old U.S. Route 27 and Wood Road, where the company uses heavy construction equipment to extract sand and gravel, mostly used for roads in the Midwest area, according to Clark.
