STOW: City Hall was packed full of residents ready to address the Redmon Funeral Home crematorium legislation that has created controversy within the community. 

The public hearing was tabled until 5:30 p.m. on Thursday due to technical difficulties. Council was not able to record the minutes, then recessed to an executive session. 

Owner Keith Redmon requested permission to install cremation equipment in order to offer the service to customers. However, residents that live near the funeral home have voiced opposition to the legislation.

It has not yet been determined whether or not council will vote on the Redmon legislation at the City Council meeting that is scheduled to follow the public hearing on Thursday.
