Augusta files lawsuit over McGee Construction blast
Stephen Langsdorf is quoted in the Portland Press Herald article on a lawsuit filed by the city of Augusta, Maine against Steve McGee Construction. The city alleges a May blast in a gravel pit exceeded allowable standards.
"We will let the judge determine the appropriate penalty, including the possibility of revoking all licenses in the city,” Langsdorf said. “The frequency of conflict with the neighborhood is an important factor in determining the appropriate penalty. We have had two previous consent agreements, and McGee paid $1,500 for the first and $3,000 for the second. The (City) Council preferred here to let the court decide the appropriate penalty for a third violation.”
