MAC Construction loses asphalt plant permit

MAC Construction and Excavating’s permit to operate an asphalt plant at the Hanson-Atkins Quarry has been revoked by the city of Jeffersonville, IN, authorities.

Pat Barrow, who filed a lawsuit in 2010 with neighbor Charlie Hanka against MAC Construction and the city of Jeffersonville, said her attorney filed a motion Tuesday to drop the lawsuit following the news of the permit being pulled.

Barrow said that the city granted MAC the permit illegally outside of a public meeting and that neighbors of the plant have dealt with soot in the air and soil, odor and noise from the plant.

MAC spokesman Bryan Wickens, vice president of administration and general counsel, said that the decision to pull the permit does not simplify the issue despite the city’s intention to do so.

“We are disappointed the city chose to take action that appears to be a revocation of the permit and vehemently disagree with this decision and approach,” Wickens said in a written statement.
