The Cass County Board of Supervisors have approved a resolution pertaining to the construction of livestock confinement facilities within the County. The move came during the Board’s meeting Monday morning, in Atlantic. Auditor Dale Sunderman said it’s the same thing the board approved last year and in previous years, with the exception of the dates. Sunderman says basically if a person has plans to construct a livestock facility and a permit is required, the application must be reviewed by the Board. The Supervisors will evaluate the application using the Master Matrix created by Iowa Code.

The Board’s recommendation to the Iowa DNR may be based on the final score on the Master Matrix or on reasons other than the final score.
