Annotation:
According to the article, the Albuquerque-Bernalillo County Air Quality Control Board (“Board”) decided on February 9, 2006 to waive a $1,000 hearing fee for South Valley residents appealing a proposed concrete plant that would be built near a community center. The Albuquerque Air Quality Division had issued a permit to Vulcan Materials in December, which allowed the plant to emit certain amounts of particulates and metals. Among others, the Mountain View Neighborhood Association appealed the permit on January 18, 2006 however, they were not aware of the hearing fee, which they called unduly burdensome, excessive, and a restriction to due process. The Board, upon finding that the appeal was timely filed, agreed with the residents’ arguments, waived the fee, and returned the money to the residents. Article taken from EJ in the News.
