Millington Quarry rehabilitation vote delayed
In New Jersey, the Bernards Township Committee’s vote on the Millington Quarry’s proposed rehabilitation plan has been put on hold due to ongoing litigation between the quarry’s owners and the township, according to The Bernardsville News.
The township’s planning board last month partially endorsed the quarry’s proposal, but two environmental groups challenged the endorsement, citing the litigation that began in 2008 when property owner Millington Quarry Inc. (MQI) sued the township over an order to stop importing soil.
A quarrying ordinance prevents the Environmental Commission from submitting rehabilitation plan input directly to the committee, according to Township Attorney John Belardo. He said the commission must instead give input to the Planning Board.
Belardo also pointed to a letter from the commission, which objected to the filling of a proposed lake on the quarry’s site. He told the committee “not to place any reliance” on the letter, which he said did not follow proper procedure.
Belardo added that the township would not want “to do anything to give further ammunition to the ongoing suit.”
