Talent, Ore. -- The battle over a Talent asphalt plant and it's compliance to Jackson County law takes another twist.
Mountain View Paving Company now has a decision to make as it looks to comply with county codes, why?
The Land Board Use of Appeals, or LUBA, remanded the case back to the Jackson County Hearing Officer, Donald Rubenstein.
LUBA says the county's ruling that the asphalt plant and a concrete plant are one and the same is "not" correct and they need to conduct another hearing on that issue.
"The county is sort of in a waiting position now to see if the applicant appeals that decision to the court of appeals or requests a remand hearing" said Kelly Madding, Jackson County Director of Development Services.
This whole process started with complaints from neighbors about noise and fumes coming from the plant.
