A company is at odds with Chesapeake officials over its plan to store sulfuric acid at a facility where about two million gallons of liquid fertilizer spilled in 2008.
City spokesman Mark Cox told "The Virginian-Pilot" that Allied Terminals Inc. should apply for a permit from the city to store the corrosive acid.
Allied Terminals contends that it doesn't need a separate permit.
Allied Terminals President Michael Law told the newspaper that it's the first time he has heard of a city requiring a separate permit for a chemical like sulfuric acid. He said it could affect terminal business in Chesapeake.
The city will hold a public meeting Thursday for residents of a neighborhood that was flooded by the 2008 spill.
