The proposed facility will be across the river from Metropolis&#39; developed riverfront. Madisonville-based Southern Coal Handling purchased around 230 acres in western McCracken County in August to construct the facility. Metropolis Mayor Billy McDaniel says while the city is pro-coal and pro-industry, the proposed location directly across the river would be detrimental to the city&rsquo;s economy.</p> Wed, 11 Apr 2012 20:59:15 +0000 Gary Pitts 17604 at Metropolis Opposes Coal Facility on Ohio River Metropolis Gets a New Police Chief <p><span style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; text-align: left; ">Metropolis, Illinois has a new Police Chief. At Monday&#39;s City Council meeting, Mayor Billy McDaniel appointed Harry Masse to take over following Chief Mike Worthen&#39;s retirement. Masse served with the Illinois State Police for 27 years. He&#39;s also a US Army veteran, and a graduate of the FBI police executive academy. Mayor McDaniel says since Masse already receives benefits from the State Police, his appointment will save the city money and help save jobs. Thu, 16 Feb 2012 14:20:43 +0000 Gary Pitts 16945 at
