Supervisors To Consider Appeal of CAFO Permit

Posted on 29 February 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone County Board of Supervisors did take formal action Wednesday to acknowledge the receipt of a Notice of Intent to Issue a Permit for an expansion of the Capstone Finishers confined animal feeding operation in Jackson Township.  Once again, a number of residents gathered to encourage the Supervisors to appeal the decision.  Earlier in February, the Supervisor held a Master Matrix Review, as required by law.  The project passed the review, but the Board submitted a letter in opposition to the permit.  The law allows 14-days to appeal the Iowa DNR decision, and Chairman of the Board Steve Duffy says they consider an appeal at their next meeting on March 7th.
