Public Hearing For Special Use Permit Sparks Controversy At June 21 Supervisors Meeting 

The Kearney County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing for a special use permit for Olsen Cattle Company, LLC during the June 21 regular meeting. The hearing was well attended by the public who were given their chance to be heard on the matter. 

Zoning Administrator Joe Anderson began the discussion by informing the supervisors that the Planning Commission was unable to come to a consensus for referral or denial of the special use permit. The Planning Commission would rather see expansions of existing facilities than to see new facilities built, but the proposed expansion doesn’t meet existing zoning regulations.
