Malec Brothers Operations

Malec Brothers executive David Smith and local employee Jabar Ragland explain the processes that will take place at the company's Delco log processing plant once state regulators approve their air quality permit. The company met all application criteria, and a 30-day public comment period brought "no objections," said Smith. The Division of Air Quality extended the comment period, however, and 300 people attended a hearing Thursday, May 3, where they heard from opponents of the project. Now the comment period has been extended again, with a hearing scheduled Tuesday, May 15, at Acme-Delco Middle School at 7 p.m.During the wait, a reduced staff of employees are keeping busy removing bark from trees. Smith called The News Reporter after the interview to confirm that six of their 20 employees have been laid off. "We are devastated," he said. "We realize we've been hoodwinked and we need to stop the hemorrhaging."
