Irvine Officials Look to Move Controversial Asphalt Factory Through Legal Settlement
"Following a discussion behind closed doors on Tuesday night, Mayor Farrah Khan announced the city would begin looking into a settlement with All American Asphalt, reading a short statement prepared by city attorney Jeff Melching.
?The settlement will require the relocation of All American Asphalt to a different site outside of Irvine,? Khan said. ?The settlement should require All American Asphalt implement and follow a series of mitigation measures.?
However, details on the exact terms are still up in the air.
In a phone call after Tuesday?s council meeting, City Manager Oliver Chi said while no formal settlement has been negotiated, the staff are slated to begin pushing for two main goals: the relocation of the plant and efforts to mitigate the effects on residents until the factory closes."
