Commission staff will investigate the matter and will hold a public meeting on Jan. 25, 2019.
Templeton also said Lindsey made photocopies of the property owners’ Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards and permits.
A complaint was filed on July 17 by William Templeton of Albany, on behalf of himself and several family members associated with the marijuana operation at Butte Creek Estates.
The commission report notes that additional investigation will be necessary to “determine whether Mr. Lindsey used means of access to county resources not available to the public, whether the nature of Mr. Lindsey’s position influenced county staff’s responsiveness, or whether Mr. Lindsey directed county staff to spend time working on the matter.”
He also alleged that Lindsey’s actions were being made in part because he feared the marijuana operation would reduce home values in the area.
