Council Tables Vote on Pike-Idexx Compromise

Emotions ran high Monday night as the City Council
weighed sharply opposing views on a proposal that would let Pike Industries
continue mining its rock quarry in the Five Star Industrial Park. After more
than two hours of testimony, the council voted 7-0 late Monday to table its vote
on the consent agreement reached this month by Pike, Idexx Laboratories and city
officials. More than 125 people packed the public hearing at Westbrook High
School as the council considered the consent agreement, which would establish
guidelines for Pike's quarry.
