Brown County Officials Reject Proposed Hog Farm Expansion

September 21, 2017 07:36 AM

The Brown County Planning Commission has rejected the proposed expansion of a hog operation in the Bath area.

The American News reports that the group unanimously denied two necessary permits this week. The commission had tabled action on the request in March after some neighbors of the operation voiced concerns.

County Commission Chairwoman Rachel Kippley says the Wolff Family Genetics hog operation failed to get the approval of enough neighbors for the expansion to be allowed.

The hog farm can appeal to the full County Commission.
