A bill filed by Councilman Duane Dominy that would green-light the relocation of an asphalt plant on Antioch's Franklin Limestone Road and has sparked ire from residents will be indefinitely deferred, according to an email obtained by Pith.
Late last night, Dominy informed Antioch constituent Pam Ward (who was interviewed in this week's Scene in a story about the rezoning fight) that the councilman would recommend to the Metro Planning & Zoning Committee that the bill be permanently shelved.
"The Planning & Zoning Committee meeting is at 4:45 PM Monday," wrote Dominy. "If well enough to attend, I will ask for an indefinite deferral of bill 103. Should I not be able to attend due to the flu, I will send a letter requesting the same."
Karen Kelley, who lives on Franklin Limestone Road and has been vocal in her criticism of the proposal, says the fight is not over despite this seeming victory.
"Until [the bill] is totally gone," Kelley tells Pith, "we will have to be vigilant."
Dominy did not return requests for comment as of posting time.
