Recycling center hearing postponed until Sept. 3 Facility seeks variance, was built without permit

August 20, 1998|By Edward Lee | Edward Lee,SUN STAFF

The Howard County Board of Appeals has postponed tonight's public hearing on a variance request for a recycling center that was built in Elkridge without a permit or county approval.

The hearing has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Sept. 3.

Richard B. Talkin, a lawyer representing Partners Quality Recycling Services, which owns the center, asked for the delay to collect new information to support his client's request for a reduction in setbacks from a public right of way, said Joseph W. Rutter Jr., the director of the Department of Planning and Zoning.

The center sparked controversy last month when county planners discovered that the company had built the 11,250-square-foot structure on 12.2 acres at the end of Kit Kat Road without a permit or an approved site development plan.
