In recent weeks KMOX News has reported on the national debate over what to do with the ash produced by coal-fired power plants.

This week the arguments are local as Franklin County, Missouri officials continue to review plans by Ameren to build a massive coal waste storage facility near the Missouri River.

Patricia Schuba with the Labadie Environmental Organization says they want county officials to form an independent advisory group.

Ameren has told KMOX the facility will be built to the latest federal regulations and have multiple environmental safeguards.

The Franklin County Planning and Zoning Comission meets Tuesday, September 21st at 7 p.m. at the County Government Center.
