A controversial request to establish a cement batch plant near homes will go to a public hearing at 7 p.m. Nov. 5 at the West Allis City Hall, 7525 W. Greenfield Ave.
The proposed plant would mix batches of concrete and load them into dump trucks bound for paving projects in the Zoo Interchange construction area.
Michels Corp. of Brownsville is asking to establish a batch plant on Quad/Graphics property at 555 S. 108th St. Neighbors, who have already lived with a cement plant in the area, have complained to aldermen that they don't want dust and noise from a second plant.
Potentially making the Michels plant even more controversial is that much paving work on the interchange will be done at night, Alderman Gary Barczak learned at a Wisconsin Department of Transportation update. Michels has asked to be allowed to operate any time.
Although zoning allows cement batch plants, a special-use permit is needed.
