RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Amidst "stop-work orders" and violations a concrete mixing company continues to operate in Ramapo, said lohud.com.
The town cited Co-Mix Concrete for operating a use Ramapo does not allow, according to the lohud.com report.
Violations include "changing the use and occupancy without an appropriate certificate; operating without an approved site plan; and performing construction without a building permit," said lohud.com.
Ramapo building inspector Tony Malliain sent the company an email saying, “These types of plants are prohibited in the Town of Ramapo," according to the newspaper.
A lawyer for the company reportedly said it "produces and delivers ready-to-mix concrete" to workers on residential and commercial projects and is "technically not a manufacturing facility," not where cement is manufactured, said lohud.com.
"Sand, stone, cement, and other materials are measured and combined at the site and loaded into trucks, said Donald Tracy, the attorney for owner David Friedman, according to the report.
His contention is that manufacturing happens when materials are combined with concrete, which in this case is in the trucks while it's being taken to project places, said lohud.com.
