Brick Township is not backing down from a lawsuit filed by the owners of an Adamston Road property that was the latest move the fight over the controversial plans for the site, the township's attorney.
At Tuesday's Township Council meeting, residents in the immediate proximity of the former bank site at 385 Adamston Road who have been opposing the proposal asked for the township's stance on the lawsuit that was filed Aug. 8.
"We want to know that the town is on the same page," said Bill Truex as he asked about the lawsuit. Residents fighting the project have been vocal in their opposition, packing hearings and following every turn closely.
Township Attorney Kevin Starkey said the township, along with its planning and zoning board attorneys, are in agreement that the lawsuit by 385 Adamston LLC is just an attempt circumvent the zoning board process.
