Hog confinements: County will not appeal DNR decision
Union County Board of Supervisors will not appeal the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) recent decision to grant construction permits to Mike Taylor of Taylor Family Farms for two hog confinements in Union County.
Tim Kenyon, county attorney, broke that news to more than a dozen concerned homeowners snuggled together in the board room Monday morning.
Kenyon said, with both hog confinements passing master matrix testing, "the county has no factual nor legal basis to pursue the very narrow/limited issues available for an appeal." Kenyon said the board doesn't feel it to be appropriate to expend county resources to pursue an appeal, which, in all likelihood, would not be successful.
