NORTH NASHVILLE, TN — Dozens of Haynes-Trinity Neighborhood Coalition members gathered Tuesday night in the lobby of the Metro Police North Precinct to vent frustrations and tell their councilman they want a waste disposal business moved far from their homes.
Nearly 50 residents stood with their coalition leaders, neighbors and children to oppose the business’ request to Metro Nashville’s City Council for legislation that would allow the waste processing to move within District 2. The residents’ rally preceded Second District Councilman DeCosta Hastings’ meeting that included presentations from representatives of the processing business.
Metro Council is set to meet on Tuesday evening in the historic courthouse in downtown Nashville where a public hearing was conducted Aug. 7 when dozens of residents also voiced their opposition to the proposed relocation of the plant.
