BETHANY, Oklahoma -

A meeting to decide whether a metro funeral home director can build a crematory near a Bethany neighborhood lasted at least three hours Tuesday night.

The city council was set to give a final answer on rezoning a plot of land near an assisted living facility and several homes.
