- Ag Docket
(farmers challenge county’s denial of conditional-use permit (CUP) to expand feedlot, arguing that record did not support findings that expansion would create unreasonable adverse effects due to odor and that use was not compatible with surrounding properties; farmers also argued that county’s decision was unreasonable and record supported grant of limited expansion; appellate court found that record did not support county’s findings and conclusions, and reversed denial of conditional use permit; court remanded with instructions to grant CUP with reasonable conditions that may include specific requirements to be met by farmers before implementation of any incremental increase in animal units).
