Supervisors Pass Master Matrix Resolution


As the resolution below reads, the Hardin County Board of Supervisors encourages everyone to contact their legislators and state leadership to demand that the matrix be examined by all interested parties for the good of all Hardin County residents and Iowans

Hardin County Resolution #2017-19

Whereas the Hardin County Supervisors recognize the importance of the agricultural growth and agricultural capitalism we also believe that the D.N.R.’s master matrix is in need of review by the Governor, Lt. Governor, Iowa House and Senate, along with the D.N.R. and the general public. While confined animal feeding operations are vital in terms of a food source, jobs, and property tax base, the Hardin County Supervisors acknowledge that it is our responsibility to represent all taxpayers in regards to personal health and well-being, environmental stewardship, ability to recreate, create healthy social events, maintain taxpayer infrastructure, and good farm neighbors while being a strong link in feeding the world. Today, we call on said elected officials to bring the master matrix back for review as they do in all other professional fields and occupations as times and technology change, so do those in the confined animal feeding operations industry. Until the State lawmakers at the State level act upon this master matrix the Hardin County Supervisors will take no further action.
