The Board of County Commissioners plans to finalize a bond agreementbetween the county and Lehigh Portland Cement Co. for a new quarry in New Windsor by July 5.
Monday, lawyers for the county, Lehigh and the New Windsor Citizens Action Project discussed the agreement forabout 2 1/2 hours.
The former board of commissioners, which left office in December,had signed the agreement, but Lehigh asked that the document, calledan indenture, be renegotiated.
"We need to be as fair as we can to both sides," said Commissioner President Donald I. Dell.
NEWCAP lawyer Clark R. Shaffer of Westminster said the new version of the agreement, which was submitted by Lehigh's attorney, leaves open the possibility for the company to claim the county cannot change the zoning on land it owns near New Windsor.
