Intermet Corporation needs a permit from the D-E-Q to operate once the plant's rebuilt.
But because of complaints from the community about emissions, officials from DEQ decided to hear if the public believes the company should receive the permit.

Residents say the Department of Environmental Quality needs to look into the emissions more closely while employees say the plant has made substantial changes and holding off on the permit will only delay their return to work.

Even though rebuilding is already underway, New River Castings cannot officially return to business until a permit is issued for emissions from the core making machines and sand handling equipment.

It happened shortly after one, outside a house just off Reed Creek Drive near Draper.
Authorities say the 65-year-old landlord, James Compton, shot 27-year-old Darren Christopher Womack twice after a brief but violent fight.
Deputies say Compton had been severely beaten in the head and chest.
He was flown to Bristol Regional Medical Center.
The hospital will NOT release information on his condition.
Sources say the two men had been involved in an ongoing dispute and that Compton had asked Womack to leave his house.
Deputies are investigating whether Compton will be charged in the shooting.
