Tifton neighbors have concern about a crematory expansion

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

New construction at a Tifton Crematory is upsetting some neighbors.

Reflection Cremation and Funeral Service is undergoing an expansion project.

It will allow them to cremate in-house instead of using a third party.

Neighbors across the way at Spud Bowen and Associates say they don't believe the company went through the right steps to get approval from the city. 

The owner of the funeral home says that's not the case. 

"There's no difference in zoning between what we are now and what we were a year and a half ago. So I don't see the big uproar," Mike Jones said.

We reached out to the City Manager.

He said the city is looking into it the issue to make sure all the proper steps were taken.
