WHITEWRIGHT, Texas (KXII) -- At a public hearing, the Whitewright Planning and Zoning Commission denied a fertilizer company permission to install tanks downtown.

Martinek Gran and Bins applied for a commercial building permit in 2015.

In 2016, a stop work order was issued citing non-conforming use.

The Texas Commission of Environmental Quality website shows seven complaints have been filed from 2002 -2016 against Martinek's other locations.

This is the reason why many residents showed up last night to voice their concerns. The City Council makes its final decision next week.
