Homeland Security Treasures: Salt Barns !?!

Good grief…

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against the state of New Jersey after it refused to release the construction plans for a barn used to store road salt, on the basis that doing so would be a security risk.

The salt barn in question is located in rural Bethlehem Township in Hunterdon County.

According to the complaint, Chiaffarano suspected that the salt barn was built “according to plans that were not approved by one or more governmental agencies.”

Chiaffarano, whose property is located 38 feet from the barn, had no difficulty in obtaining the plans from Bethlehem Township after filing an OPRA request. She wanted to compare the building plans provided by the township to those on file with the state.
