OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine (AP) -There’s good news for butter lovers!  Kate’s Homemade Butter has been allowed to stay in business in Old Orchard Beach for four more months. The town council voted on Tuesday night to allow the business to stay until February first rather than enforce a Sept. 30th deadline to shut down.  Kate’s Homemade Butter has been operating in a residential neighborhood for 30 years, as the business has grown to the production of about 1 million pounds of butter per year, so have the complaints from neighbors about large trucks and other inconveniences.  Kate’s plans to move to a larger facility in Arundel, but construction delays have prevented the relocation.  The council unanimously approved the extension as long as the company abides by certain conditions, including regular progress reports and strict truck traffic times.
