ONTARIO – The project to install tiny homes for the area’s homeless will move forward after a decision by a Malheur County Circuit Court judge last week.

Circuit Judge Lung Hung on Feb. 4 denied a temporary injunction sought by Nichols Accounting Group, a firm that operates adjacent to the area slated for the tiny homes in northeast Ontario.

The firm, at 230 N. Oregon St., and a second company, North Oregon Properties LLC, sued the city of Ontario, Origins Faith Community Church and Community in Action to stop the project. They requested the judge stop any work on the project until the lawsuit was resolved.
