Public outcry delays decision on Ga. waste station


LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Gwinnett County Commissioners have delayed a decision on a waste transfer station amid outcry from business owners, developers and a Catholic church near the proposed site.

The board is waiting until Feb. 3 to revisit the issue. The delay gives incoming commissioner Shirley Lasseter, whose district encompasses the site, to weigh in on the issue.

Office building owners have objected because they say the site would bring down their property values. Thousands of members of Holy Vietnamese Martyrs Mission say it would endanger the health of children who attend school there. And the Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District and the city of Norcross say the station could jeopardize redevelopment efforts.
