WORTHINGTON - Public meetings will be conducted at 2 and 7 p.m. Monday at the Nobles County Public Works Building, 960 Diagonal Road, to discuss the Nobles County Feedlot Ordinance. A third opportunity is at 7 p.m. Wednesday, during the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting at the Public Works building. Anyone with ideas or concerns is invited to attend and provide input at one of these three meetings.
The Nobles County Planning and Zoning Commission has worked on revisions to the Nobles County Feedlot Ordinance for more than a year and is nearing a final draft. The original ordinance dates back to 1995, and aside from a couple revisions has been the guidance for livestock zoning for 20 years.
MPCA revised its feedlot rules in 2000, and the county is working to develop a document to more closely reflect the 7020 Feedlot Rules, especially when it comes to manure application rules.
A copy of the latest draft is available at Nobles County Public Works building. Individuals may also call in comments, 295-5322.
