10 - 11 - 2013 Hawbaker discontinues appeal for asphalt plant in Brown Twp.
[LS] - The appeal that was recently struck down by the court regarding the proposed construction of an Asphalt Plant in Brown Township, has been discontinued by Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. A hearing had been scheduled for Thursday to determine whether the Brown Township Zoning Hearing Board abused its discretion or committed an error of law and whether its necessary findings are supported by substantial evidence. A representative with Brown Township said Hawbaker can still reapply for the special exception permit required to construct the plant. The appeal was originally filed on May 16 after Hawbaker was denied a request from the Zoning Hearing Board for the special exception permit.
