SPRING HILL, Tenn. – The decision on a controversial crematorium in Spring Hill has been deferred for a second time.
City leaders in Spring Hill voted Monday night to defer the vote on a building a crematorium until their November meeting.
The Board of Mayor and Alderman will take up the issue again on November 22nd.
The vote on the crematorium was deferred during the Alderman's September meeting, after a written request from Spring Hill Memorial Park's legal counsel stating that the property owner wanted to look at providing additional environmental studies.
The crematory was proposed by Spring Hill Memorial Park and Funeral Home. They want to build the 3,600 square foot facility on Main Street.
Many residents were against the crematory worried about emissions including vaporized mercury emitting from the building.
