COVENTRY â€” Tom Miozzi, owner of T. Miozzi Asphalt Company, is working with officials from the Environmental Protection Agency to maintain better records regarding the testing of emissions from the plant.
â€śI donâ€™t deny it happened,â€ť Miozzi said when asked about a complaint lodged against him by the Environmental Protection Agency. â€śIt was not an emissions violation, but a recording violation and because of that I have actually hired someone to do that work because it is so complicated.â€ť
Miozzi runs a hot mix asphalt plant at 75 Airport Rd and has been in business since 2006.
In a press release issued by the EPA, the agency said Miozzi worked quickly to correct the violations they cited and cooperated with the agency in reaching a settlement.
â€śThe original fine was $180,000 but because we immediately took steps to rectify the situation, we were able to negotiate the fine down to $23,700,â€ť he said.
