CAFO vote tomorrow 

The controversial proposed hog farm is set to go before the Grant County Area Plan Commission on Monday at 7 p.m. The commission is expected to review a final development plan for the farm and could approve the farm for a permit tomorrow night. The farm is already the subject of an appeal in court. Neighbors have asked a judge to overturn an earlier decision by the commission to approve with conditions farmer Nolan Holloway’s preliminary plan for the farm. That litigation is pending and both the petitioners and the commission have received deadline extensions to file paperwork with the court.
