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.


Further investigation is also needed to determine whether Lindsey may have had a conflict of interest when he initiated a lawsuit naming the property owners and others.
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.



Commission staff will investigate the matter and will hold a public meeting on Jan. 25, 2019.
Templeton asserted that Lindsey went to several county departments searching for possible illegalities at the property.
Templeton also said Lindsey made photocopies of the property owners’ Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards and permits.
