Montgomery County Clerk and Recorder Sandy Leitheiser has recently added links to four important Illinois state websites on the County Clerk public filings “Mine Information” page of the Montgomery County Clerk website.
According to Leitheiser, these links provide coal mine public information many constituents have requested when they utilize office services on-site. These links will offer better and more up-to-date accessibility to these services online. This is in contrast to the currently limited basis when requesting information on-site only during county business hours.
“We often hear from citizens seeking mine subsidence maps and related mine information pertaining to their property or other areas in Montgomery County,” Leitheiser states. “[This includes] final and pending IDNR mine permit information.”
“We hope these new online resources will provide this information at their fingertips,” she said.
Latest source covers IDNR mine permit applications and decisions
The first new link takes searchers to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Pending Mine Permit Applications and Decisions. Moreover, this resource provides citizens with a more timely review of applications for coal mining permits.
She said applications for surface coal mining and reclamation operations will continue to be available at the Clerk’s office. Applications will also be available at the main IDNR office in Springfield. This option is an excellent resource for a statewide view of pending permit applications, maps, and findings.
Upcoming links cover geological survey maps for mines in Illinois
The second, third, and fourth new links on the County Clerk’s website lead citizens to key websites provided by the Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS). ISGS provides location maps for surface and underground mines throughout Illinois. This additionally includes subsidence information and related maps and various state, county, and local maps pertaining to surface geology, bedrock geology, and topography, among other maps.
Those seeking more information regarding the new information links are encouraged to contact Leitheiser by phone at (217) 532-9530. Additionally, you can reach her via email at email@example.com.
