A new confined hog feeding operation will be locating in Pulaski County.
David Weber from the Pulaski County Building and Zoning Department told the commissioners this week that a public hearing was held by the planning commission in March to hear comments concerning a rezoning request. The planning commission recommended the rezoning of an 80 acre area at 11189 W. 750 N. in Cass Township from A-1 to A-2, which includes exclusive or intense agricultural purposes. The representatives of Livestock Engineering Solutions want to establish a confined feeding operation at that location. Two barns will be constructed to contain 7,000 hogs.
Weber commented that there were no negative comments or objections delivered during the public hearing. All comments were positive, according to Weber.
The commissioners approved a resolution to make the rezoning change.
