TCI vs. Town of Ghent

TCI, which wants to rebuild after a fire that spread toxic smoke across the county and beyond destroyed its facility in Ghent last August, has initiated a lawsuit against the Town of Ghent for allegedly engaging in "arbitrary rulemaking as it reviews the site plan to rebuild out facility."  A statement from TCI says in part: 
The Town's inability to administer a fair and timely review process has resulted in unlawful and costly delays. In addition, the Town Planning Board and the Town Board have failed to exercise institutional control over their official proceedings, allowing increasingly raucous, hostile and uncivil behavior to continue unchecked. Having lost confidence in either board to conduct a fair, impartial and orderly review, we feel we have no choice but to defend our rights in court.
John Mason has the story in today's Register-Star: "TCI lawsuit halts Ghent Planning Board review."
