City Reaches Compromise with Idexx and Pike

Westbrook officials, Idexx Laboratories and Pike Industries have reached an
out-of-court settlement that will allow Pike to continue its quarrying operation
in Westbrook, Mayor Colleen Hilton confirmed Thursday night. The parties reached
a consent agreement limiting Pike to eight blasts a year in its quarry in the
Five Star Industrial Park, Hilton said. Details of the agreement will be
announced during a news conference at 1:30 p.m. today at City Hall. Hilton said
the City Council will be asked to approve the agreement at its meeting Aug. 30.
