Confined feeding request decision delayed until July

Follow The Republic:

A Hawcreek Township pork producer's request to build a confined animal feeding operation has been put on hold until July.

Nearly 200 people crowded into a county's Board of Zoning Appeals hearing room Monday — some favoring, and some against the proposal by pork producer Jeff Shoaf, who farms northwest of Hope.

Shoaf is seeking approval to place a confined feeding operation about a half mile from the unincorporated community known as Old St. Louis.
