Controversial Gas Station Opens
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- The focus of protest last year, a controversial new gas station is open to the public tonight.
The new Kum & Go opened this morning on Mount Vernon Road SE.
Members of the Mckinley Middle School P.T.A. tried to stop the construction because they believe the store is too close to the school.
The principal also voiced concerns that the sale of alcohol, cigarettes, and junk food would send the wrong message to kids.
Kum & Go says it studied the site carefully before even considering it for its new store.
