Private Negotiations Between City and Pike Raise Concerns

Westbrook residents and businesses are unhappy they’re in the dark about
negotiations among the city, Pike Industries and Idexx Laboratories on an
agreement that could allow Pike to operate its controversial Spring Street
quarry with some restrictions. However, the city says the negotiations are
private because they involve the potential settlement of a lawsuit that Pike
filed against the city. City Administrator Jerre Bryant said the agreement will
become public as soon as it is ready to go to the City Council for a vote –
which he hopes will happen sometime in August.
