Victoria County Commissioners

The Victoria County Commissioners Court meet in January 2021.

Concerned Victoria County residents spoke out against the proposed Zinc Resources hazardous waste facility at Monday’s Commissioners Court meeting.

“These are things that need to be researched,” said Sandra McKenzie, an attorney at Hardy McKenzie Law. “I would ask the Commissioners Court to avoid giving a tax abatement and to consider filing a protest, so we have an opportunity for a community meeting and an opportunity to investigate what the hazards of this would be.”

Sandra: Regarding the water usage, a similar plant in Cass County, Indiana, is expected to use 300,000 gal of water per day to supply its single kiln. This water is sourced from wells. Does the company say where it will get its water? City? County? The canal?
