Salvage yard seeks reversal of permit denial
Rocco’s Used Auto Parts at 55 Park Ave. is asking selectmen to reconsider it’s May 5 vote to deny the permit renewal. Selectmen agreed that the salvage yard has been a nuisance to its neighbors over the past several years, noting public testimony and a list of potential violations filed with the town.
“This will not be a public hearing and no testimony will be taken,” said Selectmen Chairman Pat Hargreaves. “If the board does not reconsider, Rocco’s still has to June 5 to file an appeal in Superior Court and may continue to operate through that date.”
Hargreaves said if the business does appeal through the courts, the courts could issue a stay of the board’s denial and allow Rocco’s to operate pending a final decision by the court.
After hearing testimony during public hearings in April and on May 5, selectmen unanimously voted to deny the license renewal for Rocco’s Used Auto Parts. However, Hargreaves was unable to attend the May 5 meeting.
Owner Michael McClellan has operated the business for about a decade and said he was willing to work with the town to scale down operations somewhat.
