County considers moratorium on confined feeding operations

Follow The Republic:

Bartholomew County is considering a moratorium on proposed confined feeding operations while a newly formed committee examines county ordinances regulating the facilities.

The moratorium, requested by the Bartholomew County Commissioners, would mean the county would not consider any new applications for the facilities for a designated period of time, county Commissioner Rick Flohr said.

"We are going to take a sincere look at our ordinance and make sure we’re not missing something," Flohr said. "We’re going to go look at different operations and really study the subject."
