A public hearing will be held later this month on a proposed hog building just west of Dyersville.
Delaware County has received a construction permit application for a confined feeding operation from Wessels Farm Operations LLC, owned and operated by Gary Wessels. They’re proposing to build a new 4,200 head deep-pit swine finisher confinement building at an existing swine confinement facility in Section 35 of Bremen Township.
The application is on file at the Delaware County Auditor’s Office – it’s available for public inspection. Written comments about the proposed building may be filed with their office.
The public hearing will take place at the Delaware County Supervisors’ Office on Tuesday, May 31st at 9 am.
