I have recently discovered that a 2014 lawsuit filed against the Township by a Ramah Road auto salvage yard and its owners settled for $40,000 in August 2015.  In their lawsuit, Robert and Michele Hoffman of Rosenhayn and B&M Auto Salvage and Towing, LLC had claimed that Township officials conspired to arbitrarily deny the salvage yard a business permit which resulted in the salvage yard breaching a sales agreement.

In addition to the $40,000 payment, the Township conceded that the Ramah Road property upon which the salvage yard sits “is appropriately zoned for use as an auto salvage yard or junkyard” and agreed to issue B&M a business license
within 30 days of the agreement.
