City Council Approves Pike Deal

The City Council voted Wednesday night to approve a
revised consent agreement that would allow Pike Industries to operate its rock
quarry in the Five Star Industrial Park. The council voted 4-2 to approve the
agreement between Pike, Idexx Laboratories, two neighboring businesses and
nearby residents. Councilors Victor Chau and John O'Hara cast the dissenting
votes. Councilor Paul Emery did not attend the meeting. The agreement needs
final approval from Justice Thomas Humphrey, who is presiding over a civil case
involving Pike and the city of Westbrook.
