Posted: January 31, 2013 at 5 a.m.

Benton County’s justices of the peace will be asked to sit in judgment of a decision by the county’s Planning Board to block a metal recycling business from operating near Gentry. Tom Smith, owner of USA Metal Recycling, sent the county a notice of appeal of the board’s rejection of his application for approval of a large-scale development plan. The board voted 7-0 to deny the application at its Dec. 19 meeting and filed its findings and decision letter Jan. 4 with the Benton County Clerk’s Office.
