Jennie-O Barns 21 Aug 14

A conditional use permit for some new Jennie-O turkey barns northwest of Grove City dominated the Meeker County Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday.

KLFD reports the 4 barns would be located on 518th Avenue near County-State-Aid-Highway 16.

Several neighbors attended the meeting and spoke against the proposed barns during the public comment portion of the meeting.

Concerns about odors, disposal of dead birds, and potential conflict of interest for one of the Planning Commission members prompted the County Board to table the matter until the September 16th meeting.
