Marietta Town Board passes a 12-month CAFO moratorium

MARIETTA TOWNSHIP – On a stormy summer night outside the Marietta Town Hall Monday, the town board voted 2-1 to impose a one-year “Moratorium on Livestock Facilities Ordinance,” specifically aimed at giving the board more time to evaluate a proposal from Roth Feeder Pigs to build a 10,000 animal unit hog CAFO on Harvest Lane between Steuben and Wauzeka. The vote came after nearly three hours of debate between people on both sides of the issue….now the STATE should do this for the 15 COUNTIES listed in the new NR151 RULES…WHY NOT..?  Human health and safety first…right..?
