SMYRNA, Ga. (AP) --The Smyrna City Council says gun manufacturer Glock can go ahead with plans to expand its Smyrna assembly facility.

Some area residents objected to the expansion plan for the assembly plant, but the council voted 7-0 in favor of it Monday night.

Glock wants to construct four new buildings on 18 acres.

Some residents say they're concerned the expansion would significantly increase the chances of flooding of their homes from surface runoff.

Cobb Chamber of Commerce Chairman Rob Garcia spoke in favor of the proposal, saying it could bring up to 100 jobs to the area.

Opponents say they plan to appeal.
