grants pass isss in grants pass could be forced to close its doors. copeland sand & gravel got a letter from the city council on tuesday... "nope all bets are off the table, we've decided we just want you to vacate the property you have 180 days" jennifer ausland is the vice president of copeland. 50:40 "it was more than devastating." the grants pass city council is trying to find a place to build a new water filtration plant. officials fear the current plant won't be able to keep up with the city's growing population. "copeland employees told me that theyre worried with only six months to vacate this property that it will have a desvastating impact on not only their business, but the other businesses they share these 16 acres with." eight other businesses and 20 individual trucks rent space on copeland's property. workers say copeland relies on these businesses and they rely on copeland. the project manager says summer is their busy season... "for us to continue our work plus try to move, the resources just aren't there to do that. financially it would be impossible" ausland says she doesn't think they would survive such a quick move at this time of year. 58:45 "we don't even have anywhere to go right now." but she is hopeful they will work out a compromise with the city. "we're citizens here in grants pass, we need a water filtration plant as much as the next person" in grants pass, cassidy delamarter, newswatch12. the next council meeting
