Snellville orders crematory to close

SNELLVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Snellville's city attorney has ordered a newly opened crematory to close pending a City Council vote on whether to allow it.

The moved came after the Snellville Board of Appeals voted to reverse the city's decision to issue operating licenses to Cremation Society of the South, which opened Sept. 2.

City manager Russell Treadway decided to close the business after consulting with city attorney Mike Williams and acting city planner Jason Thompson.

By a 3-2 vote, the board ruled on Tuesday that a building plan submitted in 2006 was substantially different from the actual operation, including installation of a smokestack.

Treadway says the next step for owner Chris Nuzum would be to
appear before the council when it votes Oct. 27.
