Not taking into consideration the villagers’ objections, Mets Ayrum Aldermen's Council reached a decision to change the category of 12 ha land areas from agricultural to industrial for the construction of a new tailing dump for Akhtala Ore Dressing Combine on 26 February.

Without holding any discussions three members of Mets Ayrum Aldermen's Council, Mets Ayrum School Principal Sofya Ayvazyan, Ex Village Head Papik Aruzhanyan and Akhtala Ore Dressing Combine employee Samvel Mirzoyan hastily signed under the decision on changing the category of the land areas for the tailing dump and immediately left the rural municipality.

The villagers, who oppose to the tailing dump, argued with the village head and the combine representative and they outlined that they will be fighting till the very end irregardless of the adopted decision.
