Granite Construction officials continued their defense of the Liberty Quarry project when the Board of Supervisors met for the fourth time today.

The meeting began at 8:30 a.m. at the County Administrative Center, and the board is expected to cast the final vote.

Gary Johnson, aggregate resource manager for Granite, stood before the board to defend the project.

The board met Tuesday to discuss the project, during which Granite launched its final defense. To read about it, click here.

Stone asked why the company wanted to put the quarry in Riverside County rather than in San Diego County, closer to more of the site where the aggregate will be used.

"In a perfect world, (the quarry) would be seven or eight miles from (their destination)," Johnson said.

Oversight on how the company will monitor its air pollution was a concern for Supervisor Bob Buster.

"One of the key issues that's not addressed ... is the effectiveness in liability in monitoring," he said.
