Lee County wants to make sure its residents are informed of new large-scale farming operations.
The Iowa DNR requires Lee County publish a public notice in a confinement with more than 2,500 hogs is being built within the county.
If a confinement has fewer than 2,500 hogs, the county simply accepts its Manure Management plan and takes no other action.
The Board of Supervisors is changing that process.
Chairperson Janet Fife-LaFrenz says the county will still accept the plan.
