Iowans Determined To Stop Giant Factory Farm In Linn County

Say what you will about CCI… do you know anyone else trying to keep the state of Iowa from being overrun by gigantic factory farms?  Surely anyone can support that.  We can. Thanks, CCI.

Linn County Citizens for Community Improvement (CCI)  to Meet with Top DNR Officials Tuesday in Center Point

Meeting will focus on community, legal objections to proposed Maschhoff Pork factory farm

Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement (Iowa CCI) members from Linn County will meet with top officials with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in Center Point Tuesday night to press their demands that a construction permit for a giant factory farm near Center Point be denied.

The meeting will be held at the Center Point Public Library at 7pm Tuesday night.

“Matt Ditch and Maschhoff Pork’s proposal does not meet the legal requirements for a construction permit and the DNR must stand up, do their job to protect the environment from factory farm polluters, and deny the construction permit for this bad proposal,” said Regina Behmlander, a CCI member from Center Point who has helped galvanize community opposition to the proposal.
