Combined Notice of Public Meeting and Notice of Application and Preliminary Decision for an Air Quality Permit

Proposed Permit Number: 147392L001

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. Vulcan Construction Materials, LLC, PO Box 791550, San Antonio, Texas 78279-1550, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of Proposed Air Quality Permit Number 147392L001, which would authorize construction of a Portable Crushing Plant located on property whose northeast corner is the southwest corner of the intersection of Highway 46 and Farm-to-Market Road 3009, Bulverde, Comal County, Texas 78132. This application was processed in an expedited manner, as allowed by the commission's rules in 30 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 101, Subchapter J. This application was submitted to the TCEQ on June 27, 2017. The proposed facility will emit the following contaminants: particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, organic compounds, and sulfur dioxide.

The executive director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The executive director has made a preliminary decision to issue the permit because it meets all rules and regulations. The permit application, executive director's preliminary decision, and draft permit will be available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ central office, the TCEQ San Antonio regional office, and the Bulverde-Spring Branch Library, 131 Bulverde Crossing Road, Bulverde, Comal County, Texas, beginning the first day of publication of this notice. The facility's compliance file, if any exists, is available for public review at the TCEQ San Antonio Regional Office, 14250 Judson Rd, San Antonio, Texas.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. The TCEQ will hold a public meeting for this application. You may submit public comments on this application or request a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. The TCEQ will consider all public comments in developing a final decision on the application. The public meeting will consist of two parts, an Informal Discussion Period and a Formal Comment Period. During the Informal Discussion Period, the public is encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the application. However, informal comments made during the Informal Discussion Period will not be considered by the TCEQ Commissioners before reaching a decision on the permit and no formal response will be made to the informal comments. During the Formal Comment Period, members of the public may state their formal comments into the official record. A written response to all formal comments will be prepared by the Executive Director and considered by the Commissioners before they reach a decision on the permit. A copy of the response will be sent to each person who submits a formal comment or who requested to be on the mailing list for this application and who provides a mailing address. Only relevant and material issues raised during the formal comment period can be considered if a contested case hearing is granted.

The Public Meeting is to be held:

If the request is made by a group or association, one or more members who have standing to request a hearing must be identified by name and physical address. The interests the group or association seeks to protect must also be identified. You may also submit your proposed adjustments to the application/permit which would satisfy your concerns. Requests for a contested case hearing must be submitted in writing within 30 days following this notice to the Office of the Chief Clerk, at the address provided in the information section below.

A contested case hearing will only be granted based on disputed issues of fact or mixed questions of fact and law that are relevant and material to the Commission's decisions on the application. The Commission may only grant a request for a contested case hearing on issues the requestor submitted in their timely comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. Issues that are not submitted in public comments may not be considered during a hearing.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. A timely hearing request has been received by the TCEQ. However, if all timely contested case hearing requests have been withdrawn and no additional comments are received, the executive director may issue final approval of the application. The response to comments, along with the executive director's decision on the application will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments or is on a mailing list for this application, and will be posted electronically to the Commissioners' Integrated Database (CID).

Any rights to a prize that is not claimed within that period, and in the manner specified in these Game Procedures and on the back of each Scratch Ticket, shall be forfeited.

GENERAL: None of the prohibited words (Texas_Prohibited_v5_30November2017.doc) will appear horizontally (in either direction), vertically (in either direction) or diagonally (in either direction) in the YOUR LETTERS play area.

That is, for identically formatted DOUBLE BONUS CROSSWORD puzzle grids (i.e., the same puzzle grid), all "approved words" will appear in every logical (i.e., 3 letter word = 3 letter space) position, with regards to limitations caused by the actual letters contained in each word (i.e., this will not place the word "ZOO" in a position that causes an intersecting word to require the second letter to be "Z", when in fact, there are no approved words with a "Z" in the second letter position).

O. GENERAL: Each letter, with the exception of vowels, will appear no more than nine (9) times in the DOUBLE BONUS CROSSWORD puzzle grid.

T. BONUS WORD 1 & 2: On Tickets that do not win with either BONUS WORD, a minimum of two (2) letters in each of BONUS WORD 1 and BONUS WORD 2 will be revealed by the YOUR LETTERS.

U. WINNING TICKETS: A maximum of three (3) prizes paid per Ticket.

V. WINNING TICKETS: Three (3) to ten (10) completed words will be revealed as per the prize structure.

W. WINNING TICKETS: On Tickets winning with one (1) BONUS WORD, the non-winning DOUBLE BONUS CROSSWORD puzzle grid will reveal exactly one (1) completed word (to avoid player confusion with the prize legend). On Tickets winning with both BONUS WORDS, the non-winning puzzle grid will reveal zero (0) completed words.

X. NON-WINNING TICKETS: Sixteen (16) to eighteen (18) YOUR LETTERS will open at least one (1) letter in the DOUBLE BONUS CROSSWORD puzzle grid.

All Scratch Ticket prizes must be claimed within 180 days following the end of the Scratch Ticket Game or within the applicable time period for certain eligible military personnel as set forth in Texas Government Code §466.408. Any rights to a prize that is not claimed within that period, and in the manner specified in these Game Procedures and on the back of each Scratch Ticket, shall be forfeited.
