Laramie County Commissioners Discuss CAFO!

The March 3 meeting was interrupted briefly after the February 18 minutes had been approved to shuffle roles in response to the resignation of the chair.

Although the high-density horse feeding operation proposed by Equine Elite was not on the agenda, it was discussed at the conclusion of regular business.  You can watch the proceedings beginning at 12:58 in this video.

Developers of the facility have asked the county for a rule change that will silence the voices of many who oppose the project.

The planning department has drafted a new rule based on an odor propagation model developed by the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.

Commissioners asked for a public hearing on March 17 to formally consider the proposal and receive stakeholder comments.

A decision will not be rendered until April 7, at the earliest.

Minutes of the meeting have not been posted as of today.
