Twelfth District Councilman Rick Blackwell will join state Rep. Joni Jenkins and Ken Metcalf of Kentucky Pollution Prevention in touring the current Maverick Tube plant in Ferndale, Michigan and talking to neighbors on Monday, Feb. 28.
The tour comes in advance of a public hearing Wednesday by the Air Pollution Control District to consider a permit for the facility.
Maverick has announced its intention to locate a plant in the Riverport area, creating about 240 jobs. Some neighbors have voiced opposition to the facility, citing pollution concerns.
