Keep Tyler County Clean & Beautiful!
The plan by East Texas Packing to build a slaughterhouse on the very edge of our city (.8 miles from city limit sign) is moving forward with haste, and without adequate investigation into the long-term repercussions. The location chosen for a slaughterhouse of this size is especially heartless, putting at risk the livelihoods and health of our families who live in direct proximity.
The dense thicket bordering Village Creek holds a remarkably wide variety of plant life, much of which are rare or endangered and dependent on over-bank flows from Turkey Creek.
What are the economic impacts of a slaughterhouse located outside of the city limits, but within the city utility district?
