The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will hold meeting across the state to allow the public to help shape new hunting and trapping regulations for this fall.

In the past, the DNR held meetings after new rules were announced to gauge public opinion.

Lee County wants to make sure its residents are aware of new farm operations that can be considered controversial at times.

The Board of Supervisors has stayed out of the discussion about hog confinements in the past. 

Lee County has been one of the few counties in Iowa to reject the state DNR’s Master Matrix, which is a scoring system for such facilities.  It has also avoided making a ruling on permits because the DNR has the final say.
