An article 78 lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Circular enerG, Incorporated against the town of Romulus and its Zoning Board of Appeals over its decision to vacate Zoning Officer Adam Schrader’s determination that was made a year ago that the proposed garbage incinerator is a renewable energy source and would not be “noxious or injurious.”
The Finger Lakes Times reports the lawsuit was filed Tuesday in state Supreme Court and lists a dozen causes of action as to why the zoning code amendments should be annulled.
Arguments are scheduled to be heard July 13th.
STATEMENT BY SENECA LAKE GUARDIAN PRESIDENT JOSEPH CAMPBELL:
“This lawsuit is just another example of the ruthless and deceitful tactics Circular enerG has used to steamroll its project despite widespread opposition. We cannot allow this irresponsible company to take advantage of our region for its own profit. This proposal poses a danger to our thriving community and our record breaking tourism industry. We urge legislators to immediately pass legislation that would put control back in our region’s hands when deciding whether we want these kinds of facilities. We are looking forward to working with them to create a Finger Lakes that is free of incinerators that will do more harm than good.”
