Valhalla challenge fails to gain footing

Not sure what all the hubbub is about with Mr. Heim recusing himself. He pretty much did. In fact the board voted 2-1 to appoint a hearing officer to overhear the zoning hearing challenge so neither Mr. Heim nor any of the other members will be voting on anything substantive in the complaint. It doesn't seem like a conflict for him to vote to remove himself from the hearing, which he did. So any decision that comes down will be free of any supposed bias. The only strange thing we observed was that the alternate was sitting at the table and even was asked by the zoning hearing board solicitor if he wanted to vote. So he did. If any thing was unprecedented at this hearing it was the alternate voting when all of the other zoning hearing board members were present.
