LONGVIEW, Texas — The Longview City Council on Tuesday night tabled a decision to allow a computer recycling “bio mining” company to operate in the city limits because residents raised concerns about the impact it could have on their neighborhood.

Also at the meeting, the council approved a 15-year tax abatement agreement with Eastman Chemical Co. under which the city will receive millions of dollars in lieu of property taxes.

The council chambers at City Hall were filled Thursday evening, with several residents speaking about the proposed bio mining operation that could open in the future in an industrial building at 2120 E. Loop 281. The council weighed whether to approve a specific use permit for that property. Like a rezoning request, the permit would allow the company to operate at that address.
