"Special" Meeting Tonight Likely to Touch on Crystal City Smelter


The Crystal City Planning & Zoning Committee will hold a "special" meeting tonight ostensibly to discuss a controversial smelter project slated for construction in the Jefferson County municipality.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall and is expected include a public comment session, although those who wish to speak must  sign in beforehand and state the subject they intend to discuss. Comments will be limited to five minutes.

For more on the smelter, take a peek at this article from the January 2008 Riverfront Times. You can also check out Concerned Citizens for Crystal City for a biased, but entertaining, take on the issue.
