That’s why the firm had asked to rezone the ground, just west of a Tractor Supply Co. store on the east side of the city, for industrial use.
“Wait a minute,” Jerry Reynolds, a city council member, said, as dumbfounded council members traded glances and Mayor Roswarski sat forward in his seat in the front row of the chambers.
